Harvard’s history in Allston is a compelling story of transformation.  The development of the Harvard Allston Greenway, a planned corridor between the Allston neighborhood, Honan-Allston Library, the Science and Engineering Complex (SEC), the Enterprise Research Campus and Harvard Business School is an opportunity to create a shared public space that tells that story and gives existing neighbors and Harvard affiliates a place to form connections and build community.  This green space can be a place that enables collaboration among University faculty, students, staff, visitors and Allston residents rather than just a walking path.
