Harvard's inspiration in Allston - The Boston Globe
Town and gown are doing a rough dance over Harvard's plans to expand in Allston...
Ideally, the museum will do two things: fulfill the university's academic mission and also serve the public, offering programs and access that delight, educate, and inspire.
But some neighbors are skeptical.
One person mocked Harvard's approach to development at a community meeting Monday night, saying: "We'll let you know what's happening when the building is built."
In the meeting, residents repeated a common theme: the proposed museum is too small and it's in the wrong place.
