Learn more about living in our North Cambridge apartments
North Cambridge is, as you may have guessed, located on the northern end of Cambridge, the city commonly known as the home of MIT, Harvard and plenty of well-known companies that set up shop along the iconic Charles River landscape. North Cambridge is more residential than other Cambridge neighborhoods, featuring several commuter stations, single-family homes situated on tree-lined streets and larger North Cambridge apartments for those who want to live close to the action, but are looking for a quiet place to call home.
But just because North Cambridge has a residential feel doesn’t mean it’s without unique dining, shopping and entertainment options for the families that call this area home. Porter Square, once an industrial area that underwent revitalization after the addition of a Red Line station in the mid-1980s, now offers residents and visitors alike plenty to do in a more laid-back scene than Davis and Harvard Squares. Just a short walk from North Cambridge apartments is Toad, which offers live music every night and no cover charge, Highland Kitchen for handcrafted cocktails and southern-inspired cooking, and smaller locally owned restaurants that can only be described as hidden gems. Finding and trying these neighborhood haunts is, according to locals, one of the best parts about Porter Square.
Getting around North Cambridge and into other parts of the city is a breeze thanks to several easily accessible transit options. The Porter Square transit stop, which spurred movement into the area 30 years ago, is steps from North Cambridge apartments and is an easy gateway for commuters taking the Fitchburg Line train or the Red Line. In addition to the bus lines running through the neighborhood, North Cambridge also has a Porter Square Hubway bike sharing station, which makes it easy to enjoy the city and take in the gorgeous architecture and lovely views in a more eco-friendly way.
