Curious George gets to stay in Harvard Square after all

Cambridge Day reports on a deal that will keep the Curious George bookstore in Harvard Square, rather than crushed under the weight of the square's incessant luxury chainification.

All the interesting stores are long gone. Unless I'm heading to the Brattle I don't even go to HS any more...

It could look just like a bank but be a coffee shop!
