The charm of living on a quiet residential street while being within walking distance or short subway ride to either charming squares or bustling Boston can’t be overestimated. For young families the Cambridge Public Schools are excellent. For empty-nesters the proximity of so many things to do is just wonderful. It’s impossible to get bored or lonely here – unless one chooses to – and then folks and life will leave you to your meditations.
