Harvard - no plans to buy more of Allston

Almost a year ago, Harvard announced a self-imposed 1 year moratorium on purchasing new property in Allston. According to today's Crimson, "Harvard does not intend to purchase more real estate in the neighborhood in the coming months".

At the same time, I'm not sure that it makes sense for Harvard to pat itself on the back too much for having "cleaned up the Citgo station". The new paint is nice, but forgive me for not being impressed by the state of this 1/2 acre property that Harvard has owned for 3 years.

    Keep up the good work.

  2. I'm an Emerson journalist writing my final story of the semester on Harvard's economic impact on Allston and how residents feel about the new advisor. I recently wrote an article on Harvard in Allston and spoke with Brent of the Task Force but he did not have contact information for you (apparently I had just missed you- I was at the library for the primaries). I'd be interested in speaking to you at any point this evening or this weekend as my deadline is Monday and this seemed to be the only forum I could contact you (though it did inspire me to start a blog). My email address is jamiereysen@yahoo.com. I'd greatly appreciate if you could e-mail me a contact number and let me know what time is best to reach you.
