"It's affordable in The Port"
Area IV is an old neighborhood in Cambridge which was originally a part of the marshes that were filled in along with Back Bay to become usable. Today, it’s a densely populated section of about 7000 people who refer to their neighborhood simply as ‘The Port’. Heavy on apartment buildings and condos and light on single-family houses, Area IV is a very walkable area with easy and quick access to shopping, entertainment and restaurants. There are good “T’ connections as well as great bus service which makes it popular with commuters who are looking for affordable places to live.
