Leave Bos­ton Street alone

Baltimore Sun Sunday - - NEWS -

Hav­ing been born and raised on the 2400 block of Bos­ton Street when trains daily ran down the street and the Gibbs pack­ing house was across the street and Aliceanna Street was called Al­izanne, I have to won­der about the sense of widen­ing it again (“Bal­ti­more coun­cil mem­bers ob­ject to plan to turn Bos­ton Street into 'su­per­high­way,'” Sept. 8). Have the mayor and the plan­ners taken a good at where Bos­ton Street feeds into two streets, Al­izanne, par­don me, Aliceanna, and Fleet, which go through neigh­bor­hoods in East Bal­ti­more? Why not pick a street that runs from 95 di­rectly into the heart of the city like LaFayette, or would that make too much sense? Have they ever driven east on Bos­ton Street in the morn­ing dur­ing the week when cars are backed up at lights on O’Donnell, Fleet Street and Al­izanne, there I go again, Aliceanna? It is like try­ing to cram 10 pounds of stuff into a five-pound bag. When will Can­ton and Fells Point be re­lieved of bear­ing the need to get peo­ple to work in the morn­ing?
