Cambridge, with a population of just over 100,000 is the funky "left bank" of Boston. Just separated from each other by the Charles River, the two cities are linked by the Harvard, Longfellow and several other bridges as well as by major bus and subway lines. Cambridge is home to the two academic giants: Harvard University and the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT). These schools employ over one-sixth of the city's residents and attract thousands of students who comprise a full third of Cambridge's population.
Renowned for their community of international flair, Cantabridgians hail from over sixty-four countries; one in five residents here is foreign born. The rich diversity present in Cambridge can be seen most notably in the almost endless variety of ethnic restaurants. Cambridge Street, beginning at the train terminal Lechmere Station, runs all the way to Harvard Square and is lined with literally a mile of restaurants of Portuguese, Greek, Caribbean, Chinese, Japanese, Brazilian, Mexican, Italian and Middle Eastern cuisine.
One landmark restaurant is the Jewish Delicatessen S&S, which attracts diners from all over the metropolitan area. Cambridge also celebrates its character as an international city with several annual street festivals such as the Cambridge Carnival International, showcasing Latin American and Caribbean culture in a Mardi Gras atmosphere; and the Saints Comas and Damian Italian Feast in East Cambridge, held each Labor Day.
The city's squares attract residents and visitors, offering commercial activity, landmarks and people watching. An abundance of restaurants as well as a jazz club and Irish pub are found in Inman Square; Kendall Square, just across the Longfellow Bridge from Boston's Beacon Hill and Massachusetts General Hospital is a hub of high tech business sites; Central Square, at the midway point between the Harvard and MIT campuses is home to the city's government buildings and countless specialty shops and bohemian night spots.
Harvard Square, in the shadow of the university's grand brick building campus, has an abundance of sidewalk cafes, newsstands and bookshops. Families can send their children to one of the city's 15 public elementary schools, the Cambridge Ringe and Latin High School or choose from ten private schools. With both urban and suburban neighborhoods, Cambridge has a mixture of single and multi-family homes. This community covering just over 6 square miles is compact and contains a cultural richness that rivals other world-class cities.
