I couldn't care less if it's on the National Registry of Historical Places or not. Designations like that mean nothing to me. What matters is that the TV screens are tacky af and don't fit the aesthetic.

My concerns aren't about "preserving history" as much as they are about good design. The Cambridge Seven MBTA signage is good design and good branding. "ARLINGTON" and "TO ALL TRAINS" in simple black, green, and white is a classy look. The flatscreens broadcasting Dunkin Donuts ads are not. It's easy as that...
