Discover The Port + Central Square in Cambridge, MA

The Port (formerly known as Area 4) is a high-density residential neighborhood with around 7,000 residents. The Port is bounded by Hampshire Street to the north, the Boston & Albany Railroad to the east, Prospect Street to the west, and Massachusetts Avenue to the south. The major commercial center and transit center in the Port lies in Central Square, with the main commercial strip along the Massachusetts Avenue edge, while smaller commercial areas exist along Main Street, Prospect Street, and Hampshire Street.
Most of The Port is residential in character. However, the triangle in the southern part of the neighborhood bounded Massachusetts Avenue, Main Street and the Grand Junction Railroad (sometimes referred to as the Osborn Triangle) is a former industrial center now home to high-tech labs and offices, as well as facilities for the neighboring Massachusetts Institute of Technology. The Port is not to be confused with Cambridgeport, which is a different neighborhood of Cambridge. (Cambridgeport is located between Central Square and the Charles River.)
