Pemberton Street In North Cambridge – Cambridge Real Estate and Architecture

Pemberton Street in North Cambridge – Cambridge Real Estate and Architecture   Pemberton Street is one of my favorite streets in Cambridge.  For a not-so-long street there’s a lot going on.

Pemberton Street is an L-shaped street that begins at the intersection of  Rindge Avenue and Mass Ave and runs to Sherman Street.  Pemberton Street is in the Cambridge MA 02140 zipcode.  It’s a very pleasant, walkable street with a wonderful variety of house styles and an assortment of public amenities. 

At the Mass Ave end of the street Pemberton Market anchored the street from the 1930s but moved across Mass Ave to the former White Hen Panty at the corner of Day Street last year.  The corner storefronts were remodeled and new tenants are starting to move in.
