Harvard proposes to beautify a sidewalk along a parking lot

If you were making a list of 6 public realm investments to be proposed by Harvard for the next TEN years, you might think that all 6 would be pretty impressive. Or maybe not...

100 Holton Street is across the street from the Star Market loading dock, next to the blank brick wall of an old Harvard building where I think the Fire Department still trains, and next to another Harvard property.

It is also the site of one of Harvard's 6 public realm offerings. How nice will the entrance to this parking lot be when Harvard is done with it?

Certainly I think the entrance to every Harvard parking lot should be lovely, but if you were choosing 6 ways to improve our community would this be one of them?

  1. Harry: unless the "community" people on the committee can come up with some ideas and push them than this be all you will get. did you ever see a cat playing on the floor with a toy mouse.

    the group is seen as window dressing

    the community task forces for the local universities have been around since 1984 and have all been worn down or captured by the institutions that they were supposed to influence.

    Harvard is the same as the rest just bigger richer and with a lot more chutzpah
