MIT-Area 2 is bounded to the north by Broadway and Main Street, to the east by the Charles River and to the west by the Boston & Albany Railroad tracks and is almost entirely occupied by the campus of the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT). Area 2 contains the core of MIT’s academic and research facilities, as well as most of MIT’s student housing. The vast majority of the neighborhood’s residents are undergraduate or graduate students living in MIT dormitories or fraternities. The major commercial and transit center for the neighborhood is at nearby Kendall Square, and the Charles River Reservation serves as the neighborhood’s largest public recreational resource. The Harvard Bridge (Massachusetts Avenue) and Longfellow Bridge (Main Street) connect the neighborhood to the City of Boston.
