It’s a strange time in Cambridge’s Harvard Square: The historical neighborhood is seeing quite a lot of changes as rents increase, construction drags on, and out-of-town companies replace local businesses. A number of neighborhood mainstays have closed in recent years, with more closures to come. (Flat Patties and Bartley’s Burgers, for example, have both expressed that they may not make it past 2019, at least not in Harvard Square, depending on how lease negotiations go.)
