Not to get this thread going back in this tangent that it's been on several times, but I don't think I'd blink twice if the Citgo sign was taken down or moved and I've been here for 22 years with no intentions of leaving. I also think outsiders would find it strange that we worship a gasoline company sign as much as we do.-In all fairness, I love height. but you cant take away what the Citgo sign represents to Boston. Its Iconic. No matter what anyone here thinks, the vast majority of Bostonians and Outsiders wouldnt want the Citgo sign to go
Not only that, but the fact that there was a city-wide fight, that even the mayor got involved with, over protecting the sign, and very, very little cooperation from the BPDA, historical commissions, and the city on preserving one of the remaining pieces of character in Kenmore Square, which has ultimately led to its demolition and replacement being a 'find-anywhere,' route-128-esque steril office building, says a lot about where our values are at as a city.
