Plant Identification Filter: What is this New England tree with cherry-like fruit?

Coworkers and I are stumped. A tree outside our office in Cambridge, MA has resisted all our attempts to identify it. The fruit looks a lot like cherries, with a stringy, yellow-orange interior that is sweet and bland (we tried it; we didn't die).
The fruit starts out green, then turns yellow and red. The skin is tough (and unpleasant to eat); the fruit has a pit.
