Re: Official City Hall Plaza Proposals

They literally just planted some trees and called it redevelopment. It's not going to help the fact that the plaza is way out of scale with humans and needs to downsized.

Re: Boston - Most Embarrassing Blight That Tourists See

Even tourists with no architectural interest can tell that its ugly and doesn't fit what they thought (cobblestone streets, brick churches).

Re: Boston - Most Embarrassing Blight That Tourists See

West End. If you are entering Boston from the North, the first thing you see is that horrible mass of 60s apartment and office towers, and you think "Isn't Boston all historic and shit?".
