Brookline, MA – City Realty Group, a community-focused real estate development company serving the Greater Boston area, has donated $5,000 to help reopen the Brookline Teen Center, which was forced to shut down due to the pandemic.

Brookline Teen Center, located at 40 Aspinwall Ave., is home to an indoor half-court basketball gym, weight room, music studio, dance studio, and bowling alley.

City Realty Group Managing Partners Fred Starikov and Stephen Whalen provide donations such as this through their own nonprofit, called City Kids. City Realty Group has donated more than 1500 Chromebooks to students-in-need through City Kids, helped build computer labs in several schools and youth organizations, and provided other forms of support to boost education for children in Greater Boston.

In addition to this donation, Whalen has committed to raising another $15,000 needed to reopen the youth center and is appealing to others in the community to help out. To donate, visit
