“Eclectic location”
Reviewed July 30, 2013

Check out the many urban festivals that happen in the square. The quirky, activist, creative alternative to the now over commericalized Harvard Square.

“Never a dull moment”
Reviewed July 29, 2013

From periodically organized festivals to a constant slew of out door music or guerrilla organized events, there's always something happening in the square to give it a festive atmosphere. There are tons of boutique stores as well as cafes, restaurants and bars to keep you coming back for more. So easy to get to via the Red Line and many buses.

“Good choice of restaurants”
Reviewed July 20, 2013

Wide variety of restaurants. Not much else to see or do but then again maybe I didn't explore far enough.
