Boston…The Old & The New

It’s good to be back in old “Beantown”. Things have certainly changed around here. There is new construction everywhere. Whole areas that used to be seedy and run down like around the TD Garden now bristle with cranes and excavators. The seaport and the fan pier area are unrecognizable to me. Massive new shopping areas, condominium towers and hotels are currently being built. 

Of course some things have stayed the same. Back Bay is a prime example. The brownstones and Newbury street still are attractive but essentially unmolested by developers. However as if to counter this oasis of calm, we learned yesterday that a second Four Seasons Hotel is being planned, making Boston one of the very few cities in the world with two of these mega-luxury hotels.

Things are certainly exciting but, I confess, a bit unsettling around here.
