Newton is especially famous for his good security. In the Morgan Quitnot's "Safe Cities in the United States" ranking, the city was named the Best National City for two consecutive years in 2004, 2005 and 2005. The ranking was compiled for cities with a population of over 75,000 people across the United States, based on the rate of six crimes: murder, rape, robbery, injury, night robbery, and vehicle theft. Every year, attention is focused on whether Newton or Amherst City, New York (on the outskirts of Buffalo) will take first place.
Newton is also known for the "Heart Breaking Hill", a difficult part of the course of the Boston Marathon. The Heart Breaking Hill is located close to the Newton City Hall, where many residents and visitors come to support the building.
Newton was also a town where Seiji OZAWA lived in the days of the Boston Symphony Orchestra.
