I get a TON of newsletters, community emails, etc. coming through my inbox daily, and the other day, I got this little gem — the Envision Cambridge Newspaper. While it’s main purpose is to spread the word about Cambridge’s community planning process, I found myself getting caught up in all the fun facts about this great city.
Did you know…?
There are 4966 private businesses in Cambridge
42% of City land is residential and a whopping 20% is open space — how cool is that?
29.7% of City residents are enrolled full- or part-time in college / grad school (no surprise here)
There are 140 languages spoken in Cambridge / 32% of our residents speak a language other than English at home — we a truly an international city!
The predominant occupation of residents (20%) is computer engineering or science (which makes sense, since we’re home to over 300 life science and tech companies)
And here’s what people say they love most about *our fair city*
