Cambridge is the Land of Learning
Cambridge is home to to world renowned Harvard University and Massachusetts Institute of Technology. Due to its close proximity to Boston it is home to students, working professionals and families. Cambridge is situated just north of Boston and runs along the Charles River. Walking and running along the Charles is a popular activity for Cambridge residents. With a little over 100,000 residents, there is a wide variety of activities to be found in Cambridge from fine dining to art galleries to nightlife. When the weather is nice, live local music can be found playing in Harvard Square. Kendall Square is another notable Cambridge attraction, with places to live, eat, work, shop and play.
Cambridge Real Estate is unique and varied, ranging from new construction apartments and condos to beautiful old mansions. Take a walk down Brattle Street right outside of Harvard Square, or Avon Hill near Porter Square to see some fantastic old mansions or ramble through Central Square or Kendall Square to get the feel for some of the older apartment buildings and see some of the new condo developments. Harvard owns a great deal of Cambridge real estate as does MIT, and Lesley University. I love the feel of North Cambridge with its multi-family buildings and West Cambridge also boasts many new construction condos and apartment buildings.
