On the Market: A Charming Central Square Condo

5 Lamson Place #3, Cambridge

    On the Market: A Charming Central Square Condo
    Tucked away on a side street in Cambridge, this condo for sale is nestled on the top floor of an 1843 rowhouse. Though it feels worlds away from the bustle of Mass. Ave., the place is a five-minute walk to the Central Square T stop.

“Sure, for those hustling to work or school the alley may seem like just a gritty passageway between street and parking lot. But for the more leisurely and present, the passage could be a conversation starter, a way to connect strangers.” Read The Boston Globe’s feature on #GraffitiAlley: http://bit.ly/2I14KkB

    In this hidden alley, a museum of modern art - The Boston Globe
    Stop walking so fast. Slower. No, even slower. And stop looking at your phone. Pause. Look around. There is beauty in the world. In this hidden alley, the proof is all around you. Cambridge's Richard B. Modica Way - also known as "Graffiti Alley" - is an 80-foot stretch of constantly changing graffiti, street art, signage, and posters.
