Central Square is an area in Cambridge, Massachusetts centered on the junction of Massachusetts Avenue, Prospect Street and Western Avenue. Lafayette Square, formed by the junction of Massachusetts Avenue, Columbia Street, Sidney Street and Main Street, is also considered a part of the Central Square area. Harvard Square is to the northwest along Massachusetts Avenue, Inman Square is to the north along Prospect Street and Kendall Square is to the east along Main Street. The section of Central Square along Massachusetts Avenue between Clinton Street and Main Street is designated the "Central Square Historic District," and was added to the National Register of Historic Places on March 2, 1990.
Central Square was designated an official Cultural District in the state of Massachusetts by the Mass Cultural Council in October 2012. Central Square is known for its wide variety of ethnic restaurants, churches, bars, and live music and theatre venues. It is gentrifying rapidly, and a number of upscale restaurants have opened in the Square. Many startups, including pharmaceutical, videogame and Internet companies, have moved research and office operations into the Square to take advantage of the proximity to MIT, Boston medical resources and relatively low costs. Some critics have claimed that the recent changes have diminished the Square's edge, as some of the older Square businesses such as Manray have closed. There is also a diverse array of houses of worship in the area, with Christ the King Presbyterian Church, First Baptist Church, Sts. Constantine & Helen Greek Orthodox Church, St. Paul's African Methodist Episcopal Church and other large historic congregations meeting near the Square.
Central Square's history has been marked by several waves of immigration. The original population of the Square included people of English and Canadian ancestry. Between 1850 and 1890, the Square attracted many Irish immigrants, and in the late Nineteenth Century also became home to many others from throughout Europe. Later waves of immigration included people from the West Indies, South America and Africa.
Central Square is also the original home of actor Ben Affleck and, since 1927, the Necco factory, which recently relocated to Revere, Massachusetts. The old Necco factory building in Cambridge is now used for labs by Novartis.
Geography and transportation: Several Cambridge neighborhoods meet at Central Square. To the east, Area 4 lies on the north side of Massachusetts Avenue (aka "Mass Ave.") and Cambridgeport on the south side between Massachusetts Avenue and the Charles River. Both of these neighborhoods were once known as The Port or Old Port region of Cambridge. The area to the west and northwest of Central Square is known as Mid-Cambridge.
Central Square is accessible from Central station on the MBTA Red Line, as well as Buses (phone number hidden), and 91.
The intersection of Massachusetts Avenue and Brookline in front of The Middle East in Central Square is named in honor of the late indie rock musician Mark Sandman, who often played there.
Central Square serves as the commercial center for the surrounding neighborhoods of Cambridgeport, Riverside, Mid Cambridge, Area 4 and MIT.

Najat was very welcoming and helpful. I had a great stay in a beautiful Cambridge neighborhood.
My stay at Najat's apartment was perfect. The room + bed were clean, spacious,comfortable and most importantly, quiet! I was given access codes for all the door locks, which allowed for total freedom to come and go as I pleased. The apartment is also well situated;a Whole food was 1/2 a block away and a wide selection of restaurants just 5-10 minutes in the opposite direction on Mass. ave.
The shared bathroom was also clean and spacious. Najat and her boyfriend were both super welcoming+gracious and overall quite people. They kept to themselves but didn't mind chatting either. Couldn't be happier with my stay. Thank you both!
I had a fantastic time staying in Najat’s beautiful home. Najat and her boyfriend Azeddine were incredibly welcoming and so friendly and to talk to during my stay. It was my first visit to Boston & Cambridge and they gave me lots of help and tourist advice during my Labor Day weekend stay.
The apartment is located in a very quiet neighborhood, with a Whole Foods just around the corner and the nearest subway station is only a few minutes’ walk away. The bed was comfortable (and huge!).
Najat was the perfect host and I highly recommend staying with her.
Great location in a quiet and beautiful neighbourhood. Najat was very accomodating and friendly. Our room was clean, quiet and lovely decorated, could not ask for more! All in all great experience and thanks for your hospitality!
Najat was a wonderful Host! Her home is in a great location and only a very short walk to the T Central Station and Whole Foods. My room was very nice. Spacious and very comfortable king bed with nice linens. Najat's home is spotlessly clean. I would definitely recommend staying here.
