TOUCHABLE STORIES: Central Square, Cambridge 1998

Highlighting this city’s struggle against urban renewal and gentrification amidst a housing crisis, Touchable Stories: Central Square addresses many of the urban questions that continue to plague our communities today. Central Square, also experienced wildly by many citizens as “Cambridge’s Psychic Vortex”, allowed us to indulge in an exquisite set of intangibles, including a virtual kaleidoscope of faith-based practices ranging from Southern Baptists to Buddhism.
