About Lower Massachusetts Avenue

Extending south of Porter Square along Massachusetts Avenue toward Cambridge Common, Lower Massachusetts Avenue is a commercial corridor containing numerous ground-floor retailers. It abuts the residential neighborhoods of Agassiz and Neighborhood Nine, and has a major academic presence from staff and students at Lesley University and Harvard University, who benefit from the neighborhood retailers, restaurants, and service providers located in the corridor.
