Cambridge seems like a 'transitional' area - with enough of an edge to make it interesting & creative.

I love the unusual entrance to the building on photo 186 - never seen anything like that before!

I love the scale & grandiosity of buildings in american suburbs. I guess that is because these were once settlements in their own right - that have become swallowed up into larger metropolitan areas.

More great images.

Jane, this section of Cambridge, Central Square, is a transitioning area. You have a keen eye! On the way up, fortunately.

I cannot determine which picture is 186. Hmmmm?? Do my pics appear with numbers to you? Anyway, not sure what building/entrance you speak of.

If you look at the top right hand side of each post - you will see a number in the blue band across the top! For example, this post is number 194.

The doorway I speak of has plastic fruit hanging at the entrance.

Jane, you are my hero! Thanks for teaching me something new! Yes, that doorway is unusual. It ramps down to a lower level apartment. Not entirely in the basement, but down a bit. It is rare to find such a fine apartment building with an entrance to the lower level in front. Odd, indeed. I wonder if it is a caretaker's apartment? Whoever lives there is interested in gardening. They had all sorts of gardening tools & flower pots. Or perhaps the building was completely gated at one time and doorway was to give a doorman a little place to stay. It isn't shown in the picture, but the property is walled for the most part and has a tiny circle drive. I wouldn't be surprised if they intended to have someone at the entrance.

I'm so glad to have been of help - especially considering I'm the world's number 1 technophobic dumbo ( no, seriously!)

No insult intended!!! (no, really!)

A suburb, in Britain, implies a residential area within the city boundary;if they lie outside of the city boundary, then settlements would be called satellite towns or something similar.
