Secret Stairways and Paths in Brookline, Boston Professional Review and Guide

"A pleasure unique to Boston is tracing the dramatic topography left by the great glacier when it passed through New England. The glacier marked the Boston Basin with a series of high hills overlooking the harbor and kettle holes where great blocks of ice were left behind to melt. Although they’re now blanketed with urban development, these hills gave the town of Brookline an unusual legacy: pedestrian pathways and stairways built as links between neighborhoods.

Today Brookline’s stairways and walkways remain safe, convenient facilities that provide an energetic walk over glacial features only partially obscured by urban growth. This brief tour will show you why these hidden pedestrian corridors should no longer be a secret."
