Cool thread, I'll bite. I've moved a lot, never really living anywhere longer than 5 years, although I claim the American Midwest as home. The past ~15 months I've been in Cambridge, Massachusetts and I've gotta say...it's gorgeous here.
If you're unfamiliar, Cambridge is in the greater Boston metro area, and is just across the Charles river from Boston. I took this during a January run along the Charles, looking over at Boston.
The whole state (and really the whole Northeast) is much more arboreal and lush that I could have imagined. Looking at the Boston skyline from a local preserve, the Middlesex Fells.
Cambridge is home to two of the most prestigious universities in the world, Harvard and MIT. I've been living smack dab between the two, which is a neat and occasionally surreal experience (going to lunch and overhearing a group of data scientists talking about removing bias in artificial intelligence, seeing MIT kids pointing a laptop with arduino and antennae at passing cars for unknown reasons, etc). You can easily take the bike path along the Charles to run or bike between the two schools. It's a very popular path with some pretty bridges along it, such as this one near Harvard.
To me as a Midwesterner, the neighborhoods in this part of Cambridge are fascinating. I've never seen so many home with so much history, elegance, and character. This is my favorite house in Cambridge, from a few blocks over.
Another favorite, until they removed all the vines last week.
A park down the street. The hydrangeas have been insane lately.
Another neat house nearby, check out that window.
Sadly, the gorgeous architecture and prestigious universities come with some truly shocking price tags (median home price in Cambridge is $1.45 million, making it the most expensive city in greater Boston). With my wife and I planning on starting our family soon, we wanted to be closer to relatives and somewhere we could actually afford to own: we're happy to be closing on our new house in Illinois next week. It's going to be a sizeable increase from our current 399 sq ft apartment, which has proven quite....cramped...in recent months. Follow up pictures of the new neighborhood would be downright depressing in comparison, however.
