North Cambridge Reviews
My area is really nice and quiet. Crime is low. The area is clean. There is 5 supermarkets in the area, all of them can be accessed with public transportation if u don't have a car. But two of them you have to take the train then walk about 10 minutes to them. A lot of dogs in the area if u are a dog lover. All down mass ave there are a lot of restaurants that serve food from different nations. There are several middle and elementary schools. One private high school in the area. Most kids go to Cambridge Rindge and Latin high school. Really nice playgrounds and a nice path to work to the stations or go for a jog. The housing are expensive in Cambridge.
Very close-knit community, quiet, but close to reliable transportation, shopping centers, and recreational facilities such as Danehy Park.
There's a mom and pop's store atleast 5 minutes away from my house and it's been there since longer than I can remember. Growing up, that store had everything I ever needed. Snacks, lunch, dinner, breakfast, or simple house necessities. I'd choose to go there over if I was simply in a rush or just needed something small that wasn't worth a grocery trip to Market Basket.
