City Guide

Brockton is a small Massachusetts time where the homes tend to be older, historic and established; reminiscent of days gone by and charming because of it. The neighborhoods listed below are some of the most popular in the Brockton area. The common thread among them is that they strive to provide a good community vibe for every resident.

Montello: Residents like living in this area because of its walkability, friendliness and older/established homes and neighborhoods. Living here residents can walk to state parks, Cleveland Pond, shopping, dining. A good area for those who prefer public transit (as this area is close to rail lines and bus stops) and convenient. While some homes and apartments are established in Montello, there are also newer complexes that feature paid utilities, covered garages, laundry suites and other perks.

Clifton Heights: Clifton Heights is made up of mostly single family homes, condos and apartments. Clifton Heights features new and established homes with large yards and is also in close proximity to parks and playgrounds.

Winters Corner/Marshalls Corner: A walkable neighborhood, this end of town features larger, established (some historic/built in 1939 or earlier) single family homes (4 bedrooms or more), condos, apartments. Homes here are more well established, some historic (1939 or earlier). Winters Corner is close to shopping, museums, golf courses and Route 24 for traffic and commuting purposes. Some apartments around here include some utility costs, pools and balconies.

Brockton Heights: Located right around the heart of the city (and in close proximity to Route 24 for traffic purposes), Brockton Heights is an area comprised of single family homes, high rise apartments, apartment buildings. While much of the housing in Brockton is established and historic, some of the houses in this area are newer. As with much of Brockton area apartments, some utilities are paid; however, apartments in this area also feature perks such as elevators, balconies, proximity to public transit stops, pools, private patios.


Getting around in Brockton is a matter of taste because public transit is readily available and the highways (called “routes” here, more on that later). The city relies on a transit authority system (BAT-Brockton Authority Transit) that serves residents in and around the city, as well as a rail system. The Middleborough/Lakeville commuter line moves through the city, stopping in Montello and Brockton Heights. The rail not only bring residents to pertinent points in Brockton but also carries them as far as Boston.

Perhaps it’s a northeast thing, but all the major roadways in this area are referred to as “routes,” so learn your numbers and learn ‘em fast. If you prefer to be the one behind the wheel, odds are you will be most reliant on Route 24. This state highway serves the west side of the city, connects with Route 27 (north) and Route 123 (south). Other roadways that are heavily used in the Brockton area are Route 28, which can bring you into the heart of the city quickly (for commuting purposes), Route 14 and Route 37.

Beautiful Brockton Weather:

Because of its northeast location, Brockton can get mighty cold. January is often the coldest month (temps can dip below freezing) and July is the warmest (high around 80). Needless to say, it is a Winter Wonderland during the holiday months and not a bad place to spend the summer if overheating is an issue of yours. Bottom line: Bring your galoshes and parka but also pack your bikini.

Brockton was settled with the American dream in mind. It has bred champions (boxers Rocky Marciano and Marvin Hagler) and has thrived and evolved with the country and its residents. With a devotion to the happiness of residents, Brockton is an ideal place for those coveting a northeastern address minus the hustle and bustle of a large town. Thousands of residents and founding fathers can’t be wrong, can they? Head to Brockton and settle down.
