(First American University) While Boston seems smaller and smaller the longer I stay in New York, it once seemed huge and bustling. Well, it is still bustling, and Harvard Square is the nucleus, full of young collegiate energy and shopping destinations. I have never walked away from Boston empty handed due to its plethora of vintage clothing stores and specialty novelty shops that were always too enticing as a college sophomore. Take a walk around the area and feel distinguished among the brick and columns of the Harvard campus. Don't forget to bring your people watching glasses, because there are more goths, punks, skateboarders and general teen angst ridden loiterers than you can shake a magic?? stick at.
