The Harvard Square is a triangular plaza at the intersection of Brattle Street, John F. Kennedy Street, and Massachusetts Avenue.

Harvard Square Reviews & Ratings
I live in Vermont. Whenever I want to see, do, experience, or eat anything cool, I go to Harvard Square, among other Boston attractions. This visit I went to Milk Bar, Christina Tosi’s bakery. Is drive two hours just for the Crack Pie(sorry, it will always be Crack Pie to me). Amazing bakery, with amazing confections. HIGHLY RECOMMENDED!!!
I had a walk there afternoon, nice atmosphere and suitable for having group dinner or even just taking a cup of coffee. I liked the historic architecture of the buildings. Nice place for a walk or touring on a bike which one can rent from couple of spots there.
The grounds were quite shabby. I get it. They put durable chairs all over the place for sitting in the fresh air, reading, conversing, debating...but can they rotate the crop a little by rolling & reseeding whole areas for beauty and aesthetic comfort? Winter is coming. Impress me.
There are many nice spots all over the district but this is the heart of it. Major subway and bus station nearby makes your life easier to reach here and go somewhere else. I am still discovering many nice spots near the square. No need to mention Harvard University nearby and Harvard Coop Bookstore in the square among other goodies. I visit Harvard Square often, as it has a number of wonderful and diverse type of restaurants for breakfast, lunch, dinner or just drinks and appetizers. Also lots of shopping and site seeing, especially with Harvard University right there...as well as a number of museums.
Harvard Sq., mainly it's a institution. (pun intended). Not based solely on John Harvard himself who isn't the person standing for the founder's statue in the yard. But, it's the unique form of cultural individualism. Vast array of personality in general. From eateries, workshops, sidewalk cafe's, clothing, literature, music, colors, churches, major historical sites, and a well mainained public common with equally entertaining contributions.
