A Visit to Harvard Yard in Cambridge MA
Back in 1999 we moved from a sprawling house in the Boston 'burbs to a 3-story Victorian remodeled home (formerly a 2-family converted to a single family) on Line Street in "the city" in Somerville - literally homes on the other side were in venerable and more revered, Cambridge.
For a couple of years while working in downtown Boston I used to walk to the T (the subway for non-Bostonians) in Harvard Square, less than a mile away, walking through iconic Harvard Yard twice per day, and past Julia Child's former house among other beautiful Cambridge homes. But "the Yard" was something special.
Flashback to 2014 and our trip to Boston to visit a number of close friends following our move in 2005. We were meeting a good friend in Harvard Square for lunch so it was the perfect opportunity to park nearby "the Yard" and stroll through briefly. We have such fond memories of Boston and particularly of Cambridge, and living close to 2 top universities in a community that is rather unique - I liken it to Berkeley CA.
