"Gentrified living"

Cambridgeport is a mostly residential area bordered on the north by Central Square and to the south by the Charles River. Because it is so easy to walk to great restaurants and shopping, it is a popular section of Cambridge for singles and young professionals, who also appreciate fantastic access to mass transit.

Huge revitalization and gentrification have made it a somewhat expensive yet most desirable place to live. It’s residents are ethnically and economically diverse with Harvard professors and working class immigrants living side-by-side.

The area has also become a center for people working in high tech industries located in nearby sections of Cambridge.

"Lots of art and trendy bar scene"

This neighborhood sits along the Charles River which adds to its uniqueness and allure. What was once a working class neighborhood, Cambridgeport is now a modern mix of dynamic commercial buildings. Most of the historic buildings have been renovated or torn down to give place to newer customized architecture.

Most of the shops in the neighborhood are small and consist of a number of art galleries ran by local artists. Most of the art galleries and art supply shops host work from college students in the neighborhood. It is no wonder that the neighborhood is quite popular with the Cambridge Arts community.

There is a very unique restaurant and bar known as the River Gods Bar and Restaurant located at 125 River Street, that features good food, great live music and a trendy bar scene. It has been described as chic gothic in ambiance. It is well worth the visit.
