When I started this blog, I had a general (if vague) sense of what I was doing, but I’ve needed to refine my vision in many ways. One regards the question of which Cambridges to focus on. It turns out that some of the geographic locations called Cambridge would be more fairly categorized as administrative entities, rather than towns/cities/villages that residents feel part of. As an example, when I went to New York, I focused on the Village of Cambridge, rather than the Town of Cambridge, which includes several other villages, but doesn’t even include the entire village of Cambridge.
I’m currently lining up my next Cambridge visit, and whichever I go to will be one of the Cambridges that has its own identity. Figuring out which are which is the first challenge.
