  Cambridge, Massachusetts - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Cambridge was established as the town of "Newtowne" in 1630.
Cambridge grew slowly as an agricultural village eight miles by road from Boston, the capital of the colony.
Cambridge is bordered by the city of Boston on its south and east (across the Charles River), by the city of Somerville and the town of Arlington to its north, and by the city of Watertown and town of Belmont to its west.

 Cambridge, Massachusetts, blue lane   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-22)
Cambridge has followed the lead of Portland, Oregon in installing a "blue lane" which is intended to indicate where bicyclists are to merge across motor traffic.
Many motorists who are going to turn right enter this block of Broadway in the second lane out from the curb, and do not merge right until the blue lane has begun to angle out from the right curb, further increasing the risk to bicyclists who do not look back for traffic.
But the sign doesn't correspond to the actual Cambridge installation, in which the bicyclists are merging left and the motorists are already in the right turn lane.

 Boston.com / News / Special reports / Gay Marriage / Cambridge plays host to a giant celebration
CAMBRIDGE — It seemed like some mix of Mardi Gras, Earth Day, and the happiest group wedding in history.
The cheer that went up at about 10 minutes past midnight, when it became clear that the first gay couple had filed their application for a marriage license, was so long and so loud that it nearly drowned out the final strains of Mendelssohn’s wedding march.
The more than 250 couples and their friends who managed to make it into city hall, were greeted at a front table by the Cambridge school superintendent Thomas Fowler-Finn and the director of public health Harold Cox, both wearing tuxedos and handing out tickets with numbers on them.

 Boston.com / News / Special reports / Gay Marriage / Free to marry
Massachusetts became the first state in the nation to permit gays and lesbians to wed just after midnight today, when Cambridge City Hall welcomed more than 250 same-sex couples who hugged, cried, cheered, and applied for the marriage licenses many thought they would never see in their lifetimes.
What began in Cambridge last night will continue in city and town halls across the state today, as a November ruling by the Massachusetts Supreme Judicial Court granting gays and lesbians the right to marry goes into effect.
The giddy celebrations of couples in Cambridge last night, and those expected in other cities and towns across the state today, will soon give way to disputes over the reach and validity of same-sex marriages elsewhere in the country.
