East Cambridge, that is.

At least that’s what some people think.

The Herald gives the neighborhood a review, in today’s paper:

Long a working-class enclave, East Cambridge is attracting more and more professionals … [by] offering a downtown-like location for less than downtown Boston prices.

Running south from the McGrath Highway to the Charles River and encompassing Kendall Square, the neighborhood is less than a mile from the Boston city line. Two T stops – the Red Line Kendall Square station and Green Line Lechmere stop – offer quick access to downtown.

East Cambridge has the best combination of quality and affordability without sacrificing location said Samit Dasgupta, a Harvard University professor who also recently bought a One First condo.

Territory RE chimes in with more With what must be the longest run-on sentence I’ve ever read):

East Cambridge will be the next “South End. Combining affordable residential and retail prices with a rapidly growing job base (ever expanding MIT, MGH constant turnover and Google massive Cambridge expansion) and an incredibly central location (less than a mile from the Boston city line, encompassing Kendall Square and including both red and green line T stops), East Cambridge is poised to transition away from its heritage as a working-class enclave and become a vibrant neighborhood attracting young professionals and empty nesters from Boston and the suburbs.

Both stories include reviews of all the new condo developments.
