Harvard Square - Harvard University, Boston
If you walk around Harvard Square for a while, you'll usually see some really awesome street performers. When I was there, we saw this 10 year old drummer who was absolutely amazing.. Here's a shot of himin action..
One of the top universities around the world, also with very long history. As I imagined before I saw with my own eyes, this university should be a very grand one, but is is actually a bit disappointed to me, the buildings are so normal.
Among the countless activities, I must encourage tourists of a few of my favorites...Harvard Square, for one...'center of student life...'
With little shops all along the sides of every street, Harvard Square is a joy to just walk around and browse...there are restaurants, cinemas, and hotels...Especially on Friday afternoon/evenings, try to visit when the musicians, artists, magicians, etc.,come out to play!
The place is littered with all forms of fun entertainment and activities for all ages! Occasionally stars are seen on Harvard Square...one having been Christina Ricci...Did I forget to mention...Matt Damon and Ben Affleck grew up here?
When in Boston you have to go to check out Harvard which is a gorgeous university with beautiful grounds. Also make sure that you go to Salam, I really had to go from a historical perspective. I was expecting something quite eerie but unfortunately much of it was really tacky. Some of the museums have reinactments of what happened about the witch hunts and thats interesting.
The Salam thing because it figured prominent in history, to see how something like that could happen.
Unlike standard Fine Arts Museum this one is much more interesting. Has very nice collection, altrhough isn't very big inside. Very interesting collection of impressionists from all over the world: even from Scandinavia which don't spoil the impression.
Very different from typical huge city museums.
This is a picture of a church located just outside Havard University in Cambridge. Harvard is definitely a must see when visiting Boston. You can walk around the grounds of the campus and see the beautiful buildings that the students are privileged to be able to study at.
As you can see from the picture there had been alot of snowfall over the previous few days.
Harvard, Boston College, Boston University, MIT...there are so many colleges all on top of one another here. Definitely a must see for anyone looking to attend college soon...Boston College was the first college I ever toured and helped me decide what factors were important when looking at other campuses.
When I visited the Harvard University, I also visited the art museum there. The Sackler museum has very interesting collections.
Probably the most photographed of Harvard's halls, the Memorial Church was built in 1931. Its iconic steeple was patterned after that of the Old North Church in Boston's North End.
To your left on entering the main gate, Massachusetts Hall is Harvard's oldest building, built in 1720.
This is a museum devoted primarily to natural sciences. It is located on the grounds of Harvard University.
The suburb of Cambridge is across the river. It is home to Harvard U, MIT, other sights. You can take the Red line here.
Ivy League university and one of America's most famous. I visited out of curiousity more than anything else.
The Harvard Square / Harvard University is a great place to get interesting used books and nice discussions un cafes around the square.
Great times just walking around the campus and the square.
