"STROLL AROUND HARVARD YARD" Cambridge Things to Do Tip by Alcinoe

Cambridge Things to Do: 90 reviews and 176 photos


Harvard University is the oldest college in the USA. The campus is attractive, with tree-filled yards and old brick buildings. There are some hideous Harvard buildings though, including the high-rise monstrosities designed by the Spanish architect Sert. Those of us who are permanent residents of this city often have a love-hate relationship with Harvard. Without the universities, Cambridge would be without its international, exiting atmosphere, but the colleges in this town are major developers and sometimes the development is not sensitive to the needs of those who make our homes here.
