Day by day Massachusettes Avenue through Cambridge, Massachusettes becomes emptier of its economic lifeblood – traditional retail stores. Of course the economy is to blame, but Cambridge’s famously huge rents are not helping the problem. What can be done? This is my neighborhood, and seeing it wither is depressing. I’m looking for solutions for creative reuse of the many vacant storefronts.
Update: February 1, 2016
The above is (relatively) ancient history and today Mass Ave is a thriving, vibrant, economically diverse artery through a great city (which is why I dropped writing this blog a few years ago). Picking up again today to explore the happenings of the city – primarily Central Square.
