    Fun destination for antique hunting not far from the campuses of Harvard and MIT (and others). Items seemed in good shape and legitimately collectable.

    I liked the gallery. It is small but it gives quite a good idea about African American history and some African American characters.

    Fun place to come with friends or to browse, no stores that I would go out of my way to go to. Fun with kids if they like comics.

    This is an outstanding location for an event, and we were there for a family wedding. The space for events is stunning, a gorgeous ceiling and staircase and lots of room; there is a separate area for a pre-dinner reception. The wedding was outdoors and lovely gardens surround the space. The one downside, on a very hot July evening, the air conditioning broke and the reaction time to fix it was not fast as one would have hoped. Hopefully lessons have been learned so no one else has to deal with such an issue,

    The List Center has two galleries. We were in a walking tour of public are at MIT that they organized. It was just under an hour and we walked around the MIT campus and they showed, discussed and explained how the artworks came to be. It was captivating and there are amazing artworks all over the campus. It is all free. Would recommend a tour of the public art.

    I entered a fee-based competition for possible inclusion in a Gallery 263 exhibition. Instead of adhering to the specific acceptance/denial notification date stated in the specifications, this gallery, without any communication whatsoever, drug their heels and sent out notifications many days later than originally stated, thus rendering my artworks in limbo and unavailable for consideration or exhibition elsewhere.

    Upon my pointing this out to them, to my horror, their response did not suggest any plan of rectifying the situation going forward. In fact, they recommended I "...not submit to further opportunities at Gallery 263..".

    Way to go "Gallery" 263! Shoo away those demanding accountability when you take their money, and proceed with business as usual.

    This gallery lost its lease on Prospect St. It now has a spot on Mass Ave. Cambridge, Central Square. Have not visited.

    I visited the Harvard COOP in November 2021. It is a very nice bookstore near Harvard Square with an adjoining store where you can buy Harvard University merchandise. It was open at 10 am on a Sunday morning. I always enjoy going there.

    A special place! Even if you don’t usually love bookstores, it is worth the stop. And if you do love independent booksellers-run here and leave enough time for browsing!

    This is a fun place where you could spend a lot of time. On the ground floor is a room with a huge pile of used clothing that you can paw through and buy for two dollars a pound.

    Upstairs are men’s and women’s clothing. Shirts and blouses seemed to be arranged by type and color, rather than size, which makes finding the right section a little confusing. You have to look for the size on the garment label. Pants were hung by waist size. There are also vintage clothing racks plus accessories, shoes, and even wedding gowns. The store is large and neat.

    There’s also a big selection of costumes which I, unfortunately, did not have time to visit. This is a good place to look for bargains. Just be flexible. If you're set on one particular item, you may not find it.

    This shop is situated right off one of the main streets of Harvard Square. They feature crafts by local artists and other hand made goods as well. I saw well done jewelry (but very little gold), excellent leather, glass and many textiles. The shop is quiet and the service is welcoming and warm. A place to see beautiful workmanship, and to shop for unusual and very appealing items.
