If watching joggers, kite-flyers and sailboats on the Charles sounds interesting, you’ll have a ringside seat in Needham where the river forms nearly all of the town’s southern and northeast boundaries. Located just 10 miles from Boston, its Norfolk County neighbors include Wellesley, Newton, West Roxbury, Dover, Westwood and Dedham.
Commuting to and from downtown won't be a problem since Needham has MBTA rail service as well as three direct exits off of Rte. I-95/128. Price tags on houses are a bit hefty with a median sale price of about $632,000. The town has an ample supply of big antique Colonials sitting on large pieces of land along the main streets, but there’s not much within the reach of the first-time buyer without a good sized down payment.
If you’re looking for a highly ranked public school system, you’ve found one in Needham where the students consistently score in the upper echelon on statewide tests. The town has a middle school, five elementary schools and a high school that recently underwent a $62 million renovation. There are also several private schools to choose from as well as the Franklin W. Olin College of Engineering.
Needham is home to a good section of the Boston-based media market. It houses the television studios of WCVB (5 Boston, ABC) and Worcester’s (WUNI) as well as the transmitters of WBZ-TV, WGBH, WGBX, WFXT (Fox 25), WSBK, and WLVI. WEEI radio also transmits from a 3-tower site within the town.
A recreational highlight of the community for local residents is the 700-acre Cutler Park, which has miles of hiking, biking and bird watching trails. Once a move-up town for middle class Bostonians, Needham is now a popular bedroom community for those who can afford to call it home.
