Our address is:
82 Avon Hill Street
Cambridge, MA
Phone: 617-354-6106

Avon Hill Street is just north of Linnaean Street, at the north edge of Harvard University's Radcliffe Quadrangle, near the Harvard Observatory, Harvard-Smithsonian Center for Astrophysics, Lesley University, and Harvard Law School.

We are 4 blocks along Upland Road to Porter Square and the Red Line T station/commuter rail (a 7 minute walk, 1/3 mile or 1/2 km), and the dozens of shops and restaurants along Massachusetts Avenue. Harvard Square is exactly one mile, a 15 minute walk.

For official visitors to Harvard University, we are 500 yards from the Harvard Shuttle Bus stop with regular transport to Harvard Square.

Boston's Logan Airport (BOS-Logan Intl.) is just 6 miles away as the crow flies, but check on Google as there may be bridge and/or tunnel construction.

Free parking is available on the street, with a Cambridge visitor parking pass, or if needed, in our garage.
