Cambridge is just across a small river from Boston (the Charles), but it is a separate city. Everyone knows Harvard and MIT are there, but the city has many other interesting parts too. With over 12,000 ppsm it is a very dense city with some amazing buildings and public spaces. It has dozens of tall buildings and some great architecture and neighborhoods as well.

Nice place to hang on a warm fall day

The Stata is growing on me again.

Did you know that JFK wanted NASA mission control to be in Kendal Square. He died and Johnson made it in Houston.

"Hello Cambridge, we have a problem"

Man, what a nice day you had.

I went in to MIT today (sunday) to go to the Great Pumpkin Patch at the glass lab and it poured buckets.

It figures I work all weekend and my day off it rains.

Cambridge is an awesome post of metro Boston, certainly one of my favorites. Plenty to do and denser than most cities.

Very nice pics.

I have no clue why...but the thought of that makes me laugh quite hard...lol!

That would definately be strange. Of course if it had been Cambridge, then "Hello Houston, we have a problem" would sound weird.
