Chestnut Hill, Massachusetts
Chestnut Hill is often described as an "urban village," noted for not only its proximity to Boston, but also for its post-secondary culture. The village itself is most famous because of the presence of Boston College, and is not actually named after one particular hill, but a series of rolling hills overlooking the Chestnut Hill Reservoir.
First, the area in and around the reservoir, which was the first part of the village to be developed, was created by Frederick Law Olmstead, who also designed New York's Central Park and Boston's Emerald Necklace. The village also has a number of historic districts which contain a wide variety of architectural styles, perhaps the most famous of which is the Boston College, done in the Collegiate Gothic style.
