    "Quiet, close proximity to stores, boutiques, streets have sidewalks, bike lanes, and street parking is available and not congested as downtown. City setting but suburban feel, people walk their dogs, responsible for cleaning up after them, green spaces, colleges near by but never feel like you’re living near an animal house. Great quality of life. Nearby transit, plenty of blue bikes, etc. I absolutely love it here!"

    "A rare combo of urban amenities and culture -- walking distance to Harvard, excellent markets and galleries, a Blue Bikes station -- with a somewhat suburban feel: tree-lined roads, well-tended gardens, friendly neighbors. Even the on-street parking isn't as impossible as in most other parts of Cambridge. With the long-awaited completion of recent major public work, accessibility for most modes of transpo (not to mention the sewer infrastructure) is vastly improved."

    "We purchased a home in another area but will sorely miss this part of town. It is quiet, with great neighbors, and Fresh Pond is hands down one of the best places to walk the dog that I know of, beautiful and peaceful. I spend 4-6 days a week enjoying the views. The neighborhood is very convenient to the T, shops, and restaurants. Also with a short walk or bike ride you will be in Porter Sq, Davis Sq, or Harvard for all Cambridge has to offer. "

    "Great neighborhood - one of Cambridge's best, large lots, right next to Fresh Pond Reservation for recreation. Walk to libraries, stores, T, restaurants. Close to major routes (2, 3, 16, Mass Pike) for easy escapes from the city. "
