What should the Artery land be? Does it tell us something about ourselves as a society that, so far, no one has been able to come up with a vision that inspires consensus? Should the land be a miniature Olmsted park, an extent line of the Emerald Necklace? Should it be a busy cosmopolitan precinct, with cafe life and cultural attractions? Should it, somewhere, offer a lesson in the history of the harbor? Should there be musical and dramatic performances and places for young and old to play? Maybe some apartments, whose occupants could fill the park space and keep it safe on evenings and weekends? All of the above? Or, as some people think, should this land be mostly built on, to sew the city back together over the gash that was cut long ago by the Artery? This article is focused on those matters to consider about people?s quality of life in the city. New built highway, Central Artery of Boston, so called Big Dig will be a model to suggest the answer for building urban areas on the Green concept.
