Vibrant and Youthful Community

On Commonwealth Avenue much of the action starts, hosting a lively business scene, along with Washington Street. The Green Line rail system offers convenient transportation. At the center of town is Rogers Park, which offers plenty of green space for outdoor activity, as well as baseball, tennis, and basketball recreational areas. For grocery shopping convenience, residents find the local Whole Food Market and the Star Market, which lies right outside of town, perfect for when a fast dash is needed to stock the kitchen. The area alongside Chestnut Hill Reservoir is a perfect place for a peaceful stroll.

There are many fun places to eat, drink, and socialize. Restaurants include Greek Village Gyros And Grill, Twelve Hours, El Pelón Taqueria, Dash Cafe, and Devlin's. Bars that are worth a visit for experiencing a bit of Brighton nightlife include Last Drop, Corrib Pub, Porter Belly's Pub, and Deep Ellum.
