"College driven neighborhood with lots of green space"

The neighborhood of Brandeis in Waltham is primarily made up of Brandeis University and its outlying buildings. As with any college or university driven neighborhood, culture is heightened due to the presence of the school. Residents are more inclined to frequent local cafes, art galleries, and eclectic shops and boutiques. Brandeis offers a wide array of places to visit. Nearby orchestra and arts organizations provide a lot of culture to the neighborhood of Brandeis. The campus provides a lot of green space and lush trees and flowers. There are benches and tables outside to enjoy a quick bite to eat from one of the local cafes. In fact, the neighborhood is full of delis and small local eateries including Prime Deli on South Street or the vegan dining option known as Masao’s Kitchen on Moody Street.
