Ridership: With 3,230 riders per day, this is one of the highest-ridership stations on the above-ground portions of the Green Line. This is probably because the station is right in downtown Brookline.
Pros: It's a nice D branch station. It has a more urban feel than some of the stations further west, but somehow still feels kind of tranquil. It's that D branch power...
Cons: The buses around here go all over the place, and it's hard to find some of them. Also, Brookline Village is kind of hidden on a side street. From Route 9, the only indication that a station exists is a small T logo on the side of the road.
Nearby and Noteworthy: When I was in second grade, I think, we took a field trip to the Puppet Showcase Theater right next to the station. I remember enjoying the show...
Final Verdict: 7/10
It's just a standard D branch station. It's not really worth seeing or anything, but it's a nice place to wait. This was a short review for a simple station - a solid 7.
