I'm your typical eat-lunch-at-my-desk nerd programmer, but the year and half I worked for Wellington at 75 State St. I had lunch at the park 2-3 times a week if the weather allowed it. It really is a great public space, and very lively at lunchtime.Post Office Square/Norman Leventhal Park on 10/16/22. This park is so consistently well taken care of that it makes you think more private but publicly accessible parks would be beneficial for the city.

Realistically, how many places have done that? Office buildings are hard to convert to residential because of their completely different needs and uses. During the pandemic I saw a few articles saying we should convert modern office buildings into affordable housing and damn if I didn't get a chuckle.Does anyone have any info on how Boston compares to other U.S. cities in converting older downtown office buildings to residential?
