As its name implies, Mid-Cambridge lies in the heart of the city between 3 squares or commercial hubs, Inman, Central, and Harvard squares.  It offers a dense urban feel with tree-filled streets and beautiful historic homes. Mid Cambridge is also home to many institutions from the City Hall to the Main Public Library, the Cambridge high school, called the Cambridge Rindge & Latin School - both on Broadway - an hospital, and Harvard University.
