Listening to Cambridge - Part 2: Central Square

Second in a series of soundwalks in different neighborhoods in our fair city

I chose Central Square as a setting for my second in this series of Cambridge Soundwalks. Compared to my first one in North Cambridge , this has a lot more "human" sounds.

Alternative Facts?

...nah, not really

I was reading an interesting article in the Cambridge Chronicle about the old Harvard Square Theater. 

The building is located on Church Street and I walk past it every week on my way to class. 

It has always caught my eye because of the beautiful nostalgic murals painted on the building's exterior.

The Convert performs its last week in Cambridge

Quality theater is right around your corner in Central Square.

NeighborMedia is always interested in the arts and supporting voices not necessarily always heard in the city of Cambridge. February boasts wonderful performances, especially in theater arts. And while there have been numerous choices, and you cannot support them all, you still have time to catch a glimpse of quality local theater before this month is over. One such amazing theater presentation is The Convert a play by actor/playwright Danai Gurira.
