Italian - Giulia is a chef-owned Italian restaurant focusing on inspired food and great service with true Italian vigor. A particular focus on our hand-crafted pastas, made each day on the custom-built chef's table adjacent to the open kitchen. Reservations may be hard to come by. If you want to eat at the bar, try to arrive as close to opening (5:30p) as possible. The bar waiting list gets a bit unruly!

Best Pizza in Boston. The famous North End location is listed because it is a destination serving pizza since 1926. (However, if you are near any of the other locations - Fanueil Hall, Fenway, Assembly Row, etc, eat the pizza there, too!) Line is usually out door in the North End but moves quickly.

Laundromat (No Dry Cleaning) - This laundromat is located around the corner on Beacon Street headed towards Porter Square. It is clean, spacious and safe. There is usually an attendent on hand. They have plenty of over-sized washers and dryers. I do NOT recommend the Oxford Spa Laundromat - it is dirty, smelly, and usually a number of machines are out of order.

John Harvard Statue (in Harvard Yard) - John Harvard was an English minister in America whose deathbed bequest to the Massachusetts Bay Colony's fledgling "New College" was so gratefully received that the school was renamed Harvard College in his honor. The John Harvard statue is probably the most touched object in the University. Its left foot is subjected to almost incessant rubbing by tourists who believe that the act brings good luck; the standard pose, for photos, is to place a hand on John Harvard's shoe, which has become shiny from the human contact. https://www.cambridgeusa.org/listing/john-harvard-statue

Jaume Plensa’s Alchemist (2010) was commissioned by an anonymous donor on the occasion of the Institute’s 150th anniversary, given to MIT in honor of all the alumni who have helped support MIT over the years. Alchemist is related to Plensa’s other works, Nomade (2010) and El Alma Del Ebro (2010), which are made of randomly arranged stainless steel letters of the alphabet, painted white and arranged in the shape of a person sitting with knees drawn up to the chest. However, in the place of letters of the alphabet, Plensa’s work for MIT is created from numeric symbols, as an “homage to all the researchers and scientists“ that have contributed to scientific and mathematical knowledge.
