GCC : The Neighborhood

A bit of a view of the neighborhood. The Athenaeum building is on the far left. This areas was known as "Cambridgeport" at one time; but I discovered that on new maps it gets labeled "Gene town" because of all of the generic research which goes on there now (it looks quite different too, but the Athenaeum building is still there).

Nope, Cambridgeport is completely on the other side of MIT, southwest of Mass Ave. and south of Western Ave., stretching down to the B.U. bridge.

This neighborhood was (and still is) East Cambridge and/or Lechemere, but I can believe the "Gene Town" label, too.
