    Hanging in Harvard Yard - Harvard University

    Thought I'd share this experience with you all.

    It's nice to hear from another local hanger! This is only the second time I have brought it out since it started getting nice out.

    I'm guessing you didn't do much hanging where you took your selfie in your avatar
    looks like a serious shortage of trees...

    Hahah Sadly there are no good trees around BU, and Harvard Yard is quite picturesque!

    ===> I retired from BU after 30 years two years ago. I have hung a WBBB on trees on what is now called the Commonwealth Mall; indoors in an office area near there, and once close to Nickerson Field. After the Marathon bombing right down the street, there is no way to hang at BU without attraction a boatload of attention from the BU and Boston Police, and rightfully so in my opinion. Amazed that Harvard didn't intervene with your hang in The Yard!
