"John Harvard Statue" Harvard Square - Harvard University Tip by Tijavi
Harvard Square - Harvard University, Boston: 48 reviews and 77 photos
Harvard Yard's most famous attraction, popular to both alumni and tourists. It is a magnet for tourists with shutter-happy tendencies - like me. As the name suggests, it is a tribute to the university's main benefactor, the Puritan cleric John Harvard.
A SERIOUS WARNING TO TOURISTS: Never succumb to the temptation of rubbing the statue's left foot (this is not St Peter's statue in Vatican City!); it is reported that Harvard students urinate on this very same foot! You've been warned!!!
Address: Harvard Square, Cambridge, MA
