There are many things that make Harvard Square a great place to live, but the most attractive feature is undoubtedly its proximity to schools. All three of Cambridge’s public high schools can be found within walking distance from this neighborhood:
The Cambridge School of Weston Public High Schools, J.M. Curley—which was named after former Boston mayor James Michael Curley and has been in operation since 1934—and Drachman Elementary/Middle School, which serves students in grades K-12.
It also has an abundance of green space–including Prospect Hill Park (at 106 acres) and Mount Auburn Cemetery (with over 100 acres). With these amenities nearby as well as all other conveniences available at your fingertips–from grocery stores to pharmacies to restaurants and bars–the benefits of living in Harvard Square are clear.
