Porter Square

Signs going up...

Cambridge is a city of "squares".  If you're new to the area or a traveler passing through, it might be a challenge finding the "downtown" area of the town.  Once you come to grips with the layout, one can appreciate the culture, attitude, and attributes of the many "squares" of Cambridge.  Of course, Harvard Square has been covered in the media lately because of the perceived extinction of it's smaller traditional "mom & pop" style stores that have been around for close to 100 years.

A Chat with Owner, JJ Gonson

Cambridge native, JJ Gonson, has found Nirvana! Although an accurate statement, it may be a bit overstated.

In the nineties, during the height of the “grunge years,” Gonson lived on the West Coast where she produced, managed, and toured with rock bands. It was during this incarnation that she experienced (hung with) Seattle grunge heroes, Nirvana.
