Not to mention in Framingham, too. But Mass. Ave. in Cambridge was, at
one time, Main Street. The current Main Street is what's left of the
original, which was re-routed to cross the Harvard Bridge and
re-named. Crossing the Harvard Bridge connected Main Street with Mass.
Ave. in Boston, so, WTF? Why not   cordinate the street names?
