"Densely populated with lots of traffic"

The densely populated Mid-Cambridge has a lot more to offer than just traffic and crowds of people. Yes, there are major zoning constraints and a huge shortage in available housing but this neighborhood is quite diverse and offers a lot for the tourist. The buildings offer unique architecture and design, the residents are not lacking diversity, and there is a lot of shopping that can be found in the district. Mid-Cambridge combines the best and worst of Boston and mixes it altogether.

The only restaurant, if you would call it that, I have eaten in Mid-Cambridge is Bravo Pizza. It was okay for a Boston pizza joint. There just is not a lot to choose from in this neighborhood. It is really the epicenter of Harvard and Inman Square.
