Cambridge Highlands Reviews

1
Area lacks reasonable areas to buy groceries and rely on local farmer's markets. People in area are mainly under 40 years old and keep to own space. Very difficult to get anywhere with public transportation in the winter; buses are already poorly reliable but adequate for city commute. The future is bright. After this past winter improvements are being made with safety ad reliability.
