East Cambridge

East Cambridge, a booming neighborhood where technology meets blue collars.

East Cambridge is bounded by the North with Somerville, the Charles River to the East and Kendall Square to the South. Its zip code is 02141.

The Central part close to Lechmere T station is one of the oldest neighborhoods in Cambridge with working class professionals and immigrants. Lechmere is the MBTA green line stop named after a defunct department store that provides access to East Cambridge and NorthPoint. It is being revamped as of today with the nearby development of Cambridge Crossing next to Northpoint. And today, Kendall square is an internationally recognized innovation district with a cluster of Tech Companies and home to the Massachusetts Institute Technology (MIT). It carries the nickname of the "Most Innovative Square Mile on the planet". Students and young professionals pack in cafes, bars and stylish global restaurants. This is the fastest growing neighborhood in Cambridge.

Kendall Square is one T stop on the Red Line to the Massachusetts General Hospital and Beacon Hill, and one stop further, Downtown Crossing and the financial district of Boston.
