A changing Harvard Square
Longtime local establishments like Wursthaus, The Tasty, and Elsie's Lunch closed to make way for national chains.
Bookstores like Paperback Booksmith and Reading International, Words Worth, and Globe Corner Bookstore, also closed.
The student co-op, the Harvard Coop, is managed by Barnes & Noble.
Take a look at some Harvard Square local institutions and recent changes.
