Unique bookstore in Cambridge

by rkid21

Among the many bookstores in Cambridge, can anyone recommend a unique one?


RE: Unique bookstore in Cambridge

Check out mayafly's page on Cambridge. If the bookstore she recommends is of interest, I believe it's on Church Street, right across the road from the Border Cafe. They have a computer system there which allows them to print out detailed maps from the US Geological Survey.

The Globe Corner Bookstore ( in no longer in the location on Church Street. After a number of months with no physical store, it has re-opened, still in Harvard Square, at 90 Mt. Auburn St. If you have any interest in travel, this is a must see for guidebooks, maps, and coffee table books with beautiful travel-related photographs.

Also in Harvard Square, we highly recommend the Harvard Bookstore (not the same as the Harvard Coop). It has a huge selection of new books on the first floor and larger (at least it seems) selection of used books at very reasonable prices in the basement.

Great recommendations in Harvard Square! I love going to both those bookstores. :)

Travel Tips for Cambridge

Must see the MIT Stata Center

by RhondaRuth

The Ray and Maria Stata Center for Computer, Information, and Intelligence Sciences is a 430,000 sq. ft. facility designed by renowned architect Frank O. Gehry. Rising from the Building site on Vassar Street, the design is bold--somewhat like solid, rectangular structures with popout parts, aligned with giant crushed cans. Working here!!

Central Square...

by Cabana_Boy

Central Square is a little more 'edgey' than most squares, but is undergoing lots of renovations. I am afraid it may too far like Harvard Square and start to look like a suburban shopping mall. Anyway, Central Square is located at the intersection of Massachusetts Avenue, Western Avenue, Magazine Street and River Street which turns into 'Cambridge Street' after it leaves Cambridge and crosses the Charles River into Allston another Boston borough (go figure).

Young man! Excuse me, young lady? Will you buy a copy? Help the homeless help themselves!
So goes the familar sales pitch heard at Au Bon Pain in Harvard Square.
Spare Change is a newspaper published in Cambridge, through the efforts of the Homeless Empowerment Project, a grassroots organization created to help end homelessness.
Spare Change contains news features, interviews, stories, poetry and classified ads that are all written by people who are homeless or who work with the homeless.
Vendors pay .25 cents per copy and sell it for $1.00, if you give more than $1.00 they are allowed to keep that money as well. Buying this newspaper is the perfect solution for those that would like to help but are hesitant to hand out spare change to the homeless.

Head of the Charles!

by rwlittle

The Head of the Charles Regatta is the world's largest rowing event. Competitors, and fans, come from all over the world to compete in rowing. The regatta is held every October, and the shores of the Charles are packed with spectators the weekend of the competition.

The photo shows folks rowing on the river, training for the competition later that year. (It's probably hard to make them out...they're right under the left span of the bridge.)


by heywinks

Alot of people go to Harvard Square & visit Harvard Yard & browse among the many shops in the square. However, alot of people miss some of the most interesting museums in that area.
Go & visit the Harvard museums! There are a few to choose from including the Sackler Museum & Busch-Reisinger Museum (art museums) and the Botanical Museum & the Mineralogical & Geological Museum (natural history museums). Discounts are available if you visit more than one too.
The museums are not so big & you won't get the crowds as in the museums in Boston (like the MFA or the science museum).
