Welcome to Centers and Squares

As a Cambridge real estate agent, the city squares of Cambridge, Somerville and Medford and the town centers of Arlington, Watertown and Belmont, Massachusetts are my home turf. And as a lifelong New Englander who’s lived within twenty miles of Boston most of my life, I can introduce you to other nearby towns as we search for your new home. If you’re planning to sell your home in Cambridge, MA or nearby you’ll find plenty of info about the home selling process here too. Questions? Send me an email or call me at 617-504-1737.

Here’s the current 4th of July fireworks and celebrations info with the 2012 info.

If you’re a fan of fireworks like me – this is our week!  Weather permitting (and all bets are off after the last month) there are a number of places to view fireworks on the 4th of July in and near Cambridge.

Here are the firework displays and festivities scheduled for towns and cities within a few miles of Cambridge:

Cambridge Has a Front Row Seat to the Fireworks in Boston

For those who don’t want to brave the massive crowds in Boston there are plenty of options to see the fireworks from the Cambridge side of the river.  Many taller condo buildings or buildings with roof decks around Cambridge offer prime viewing spots for the Boston fireworks.  If you’re not so lucky to live in one of those buildings or want to be closer to the action, the banks of the Charles River between the Mass Ave Bridge and the Longfellow Bridge provide a front row seat.  The bridges are also popular, but crowded, places to view the fireworks.  There will be food concessions and restrooms along the Charles in Cambridge.

The 36th annual Boston Pops 4th of July concert and fireworks on the Esplanade in Boston begins at 8:30 pm.  The restricted area for seating opens at 9 am on the 4th. The fireworks begin at 10:30 pm and last until 11 pm.  The show is televised on WBZ, Channel 4.

With all the cloudy and rainy days we’ve had you have to wonder about the weather.  If worst comes to worst and the event is rained out on July 4th, the fireworks only will be rescheduled for July 5 at 9:30 pm, weather permitting.

Somerville Fireworks

The fireworks in Somerville are scheduled for July 9, 2009 in Trum Field after being rained out on the 2nd.  Trum Field is on Broadway between Magoun Square and Ball Square.  There will also be entertainment by the Somerville Sunsetters.

And on the 4th of July Prospect Hill Park in Somerville offers a great vantage point to view the Boston fireworks.   Prospect Hill Park is at the intersection of Prospect Hill Avenue and Munroe Street in Somerville above Union Square.
