Porter Square

Look up! It's impossible to ignore Gift of the Wind-huge, bright red, and whirling on its own accord-the 46-foot stainless steel kinetic sculpture that anchors this bustling commercial nexus. Crawling with students (Lesley University is headquartered here; Harvard Law School isn't terribly far) and young professionals, Porter is considerably dense with goods and services. They range from the both predictable (coffeeshop, supermarket, gym) to the not-so-much: a lively "Japantown" mall and food court, a sleek vegan shoe boutique, a thronged live music venue that prides itself on no-cover shows. Moreover, Mass. Ave. is a chowhound's playground. Can you spot the organic four-cheese pizza, Ethiopian kitfo-topped injera, or steaming pork-broth ramen?
