Ablarc, you're remarks may be in jest, but I lean toward DarkFen's ideas too. Boston could use more nightlife and both the city and state could use the revenue it would generate. From an architectural and urban planning standpoint, the area as a whole is probably already beyond redemption, at least in the style of old Boston. A modern urban area with interesting sidewalk activity and entertainment venues could be attractive in its own way and is the probably the best that can be hoped for at this point. A smallish casino and later closing times would help enliven the area as well.
