What's Happening to my Neighborhood?

Harvard Square is becoming a visitors' shopping paradise, but what about we who live here?

My  neighborhood is changing.  I’d say it was dying but I’d run the risk of sounding like the old lady in Harvard Square who spends all her time longing for the old days.  I’ll admit to the first but I’m nowhere near the second.  What I’m longing for is balance; a place where tourists and students will feel comfortable and townies can walk a few blocks to find the everyday conveniences we deserve
