Is this really progress? A true â€ścenter of the communityâ€ť will now be replaced with yet another dormitory andâ€¦.1500 more students. Donâ€™t get me wrong, Northeastern was here before I bought my home so, I knew what I was getting into. Actually, I thinkÂ this area of Boston is a very cool melting pot of urban professionals, college students, families, and everyday people all peacefully co-existing. That being said, itâ€™s unfortunate that another local icon will soon be gone forever, and a little bit of Bostonâ€™s history will be swept away.
