Cambridge, MA is one of the most desirable cities in the Greater Boston area but it isn’t homogeneous at all. In fact, Cambridge consists of 5 zip codes, with 4 that are truly residential. When buyers ask their real estate agents about where to look for a home in Cambridge, there is a real divide between East Cambridge (02140 and 02141) including Kendall and Porter Squares and West Cambridge (02138 and 02139) including Harvard and Central Squares.
