This subject just lent itself to B&W. In the 1960’s the local government out grew the old City Hall (shown yesterday) and the current city hall and plaza were created. To do so, an entire neighborhood was razed with as many as 20,000 people displaced. The image below shows the area in the 1920s – Those of you familiar with the area will see Faneuil Hall in the background.
City Hall and its plaza are controversial. Some love it and others not so much. The plaza has not really taken off as a place to spend time. This image was made mid-day on a Sunday. The plaza can be very hot or cold depending on the weather. The city has made the best of it by making it a place for celebrations, rallies, and even the circus.
