Should Beantown go the way of the City by the Bay? That's the question Close Personal Friend of tha Jalop ThnderBlt Doherty poses regarding Boston's Storrow Drive Tunnel and its abolition. In SF, the Embarcadero Freeway was universally reviled and generally best remembered via the intro sequence of The Streets of San Francisco. Since the envisioned freeway network in Sucka Free was never finished, the Embarcadero Freeway largely came to be seen as an eyesore, and its replacement with a wide boulevard featuring rail service is largely regarded of a triumph of urbanism over sprawl. Captain T'nderBoat argues that Storrow and the Embarcadero are not peas in a pod. Any other SF/Boston residents around? Bumbeck? Anybody? [The Highly Official Weblog of Phillip A.V. McCarthy]
