Chestnut Hill, Newton[edit]

  • There seems to be some confusion about the Newton part of Chestnut Hill, Massachusetts. Very simply put, the city of Newton has a village called Chestnut Hill which is the Newton part of the village of Chestnut Hill, Massachusetts. clariosophic (talk) 20:28, 21 February 2008 (UTC)

Chestnut Hill is not an autonomous "village". It is a postal district of Newton MA. It is also a geographical formation. —Preceding unsigned comment added by 24.74.143.190 (talk) 06:59, 4 August 2009 (UTC)

Chestnut Hill - not a Massachusetts village[edit]

This article defines Chestnut Hill as a village, and then links to Massachusetts Village. The list of villages in that article shows only one including parts of more than one municipality - Chestnut Hill. As they used to say - "One of these things is not like the others - one of these things does not belong."

Telling people that Boston College is 'in Chestnut Hill' can only confuse them unless they have knowledge not contained in the article. This should be very simple - is the main campus in Boston or Newton or both? Plain writing and plain facts are always best.
