Halting it about there...... There are many reasons why Boston is a particular case,Well, I guess the shade-throwers have helped me see the light of day (at least until all that pesky sunlight is blocked!). Hopefully someday ALL sidewalks and outdoor public areas in Boston will be free from the annoyance and harmful effects of sunlight! Maybe then we can stop being distracted by frivolous comments about "bullshit reasons to oppose new development" and focus on the REAL issue in my reply: that we are allowing commercial property to occupy public space....
Consigning what's already been developed and turned over again in recent decades--added to our antiquities.... burnouts and dead stumps filled, people sleeping soundly in their beds, and the glance through tomorrow's Globe........ So much (land) is spoken for, and it ain't about to change anytime soon. We survived Urban Renewal, and the renewing of the Renewal (if we're honest) continues to at a modest pace. We're not bringing the dozers to this cherished built environment. Overall, Boston is fine. It's going to stay that way. There's probably no moderating your crusade. But play 'debunk the parcel,' and good things can happen.
