And it shows, we pay far more and receive far less, because of it.
This is true. There are many homeless in Cambridge. I was just talking about this the other day with a woman who teaches at a college in Cambridge. Out of 20 students in her class, 3 are homeless. And there are not many programs for them.

Are you a highly educated, affluent professional? If so, you'll do just great and Cambridge will indeed seem like a very progressive place. If not, you'll quickly find out it's more racist and intolerant than most places down south.

Many people refer to it as the People's Republic of Cambridge.

Cambridge is turning into a city of the rich (people who can actually afford to rent an apartment or buy a home in that city) and the poor (people with subsidized housing). The middle class is being priced out of that city, moving to places like Medford or Malden.

I work in Cambridge, would not want to live there really. If I were OP I'd look more into Allston or Somerville .

is the OP the same guy that started the Fayetteville AR to Berkeley CA thread? I'm from the Boston area. Cambridge is known as The People's Republic of Cambridge. Cambridge MA or Berkeley CA? Berkeley CA hands down , not because Cambridge isnt but it's not Berkeley...............no city is, IMO

IMO Cambridge isn't the best of places to pick up and move halfway across the country with no job lined up. Without knowing the experience and educational background of the OP it's hard to really say but suffice to say he/she could likely find something but it would be an expensive proposition to move up here and wind up working at SBUX and trying to live in Cambridge area on the budget that would allow. Also keep in mind that while there are many professional jobs and things posted here, there is also a lot of competition for those jobs and no shortage of qualified local talent. Sure the labor market is tightening per the BLS on Friday but I personally would never move somewhere without a job already lined up unless there was a compelling reason to do so.

Im a 23 year old black male. Don't move to Cambridge its like mind numbingly expensive-even for the Boston area. Move to Malden and find 2 roommates (if you wanna hang out in Cambridge once or twice a week)) and call it a day.
