About East Cambridge

East Cambridge features a longstanding neighborhood retail corridor along Cambridge Street, flanked by Inman Square on the west and Lechmere Square on the east, with a variety of restaurants and specialty shops. Beyond Lechmere Square, the East Cambridge riverfront was redeveloped in the last three decades, and now features hotels, new apartment buildings and condominiums, high-tech businesses, the CambridgeSide Galleria regional shopping mall, and the Museum of Science.
