Who remembers Boston’s “Other Green Monster”? The photo below is what the city looked like before the Big Dig put the Central Artery underground! It’s so crazy to think that the North End and the entire waterfront was cut off from the rest of the city; especially since now they’re so vital to Boston’s economy and lifestyle!
This concrete monstrosity was transformed into the Rose Kennedy Greenway; complete with trees, carousels and so much more! Now, one can simply walk from Faneuil Hall to the North End without thinking twice.
If you were too young to remember this, have blocked it out, or forgot the magnitude of it, here it is!
