    Commercial areas in Brighton Center, Cleveland Circle, and Oak and Union Squares lend to the area’s diverse character, as well. Likewise, Allston-Brighton’s close proximity to local universities, such as Boston College, Boston University, and the Harvard Graduate School of Business, make Allston Brighton home to a large percentage of Boston’s student population.
