I meant Notre Dame, but the honest answer is both.Notre Dame or Mount Carmel?
I really don’t care about holding a debate.To be fair to Tallguy, talking about the "soul of they city" is esoteric. Asking him to prove why he feels like something in the city's soul or character is lost by fixing the intersection isn't productive. It's like gentrification. Some people, especially locals, come to love and identify with the grit and imperfections that make neighborhoods unique, and give locals "sage knowledge" of their community that outsiders don't understand. It's a feeling. And one that's hard to hold a debate about.
I don't think it's disingenuous at all. It's not about whether physical things are preserved or destroyed, it's about the pride and attachment locals have for things the way they are, warts and all. In Kelley Square's case, the pride that "I can navigate that fucking awful intersection because this is my town." I'm not saying that policy-makers should cater to that sense, I'm just saying it's a genuine feeling that some people have.It’s a bit disingenuous to compare this to gentrification. In fact, the opposite is usually true about gentrification, where the physical representation of the city is preserved at residents’ expense.
Strong disagree with this list. Corner Lunch is terrible these days. Boulevard is meh. I haven't been in the Miss Worcester for awhile so no comment.The Boulevard Diner- The best diner left. The Miss Woo and the Corner Lunch are good but...
The Parkway? It calls itself a gastropub!Strong disagree with this list. Corner Lunch is terrible these days. Boulevard is meh. I haven't been in the Miss Worcester for awhile so no comment.
1. The Parkway
2. The Broadway
3. Gold Star Diner
That's the top three in my mind.
