NOTE if you’re using Google Maps:
WBUR is located right on the Boston/Brookline line. Although 890 Comm. Ave. is located on the Boston side, you may need to enter “890 Commonwealth Ave., Brookline,” in order to keep Google from getting confused. As long as it takes you to the block between St. Paul and Amory Streets, you’re headed in the right direction.
