The Harvard Crimson :: Opinion :: Let Them Eat Cake

A scathing piece by a Harvard junior in the Crimson about Harvard's Allston expansion - Let Them Eat Cake.

But how can a Finale kitchen with no retail component be a sign of gentrification? An actual Finale restaurant, maybe, but you'd never see a commissary on a main street of the South End, Back Bay, or other upscale neighborhoods of Boston. Instead of letting us buy and eat cake, it is more like "let us look at an unattractive little building where cake is made to sell to people elsewhere".
