God, hipsters at it again
The Herald reports the artsy-fartsy crowd thinks SoCa would be a better name for the area south of North Station, or as they're re-imagining it, SOuth of CAnal, which barely makes any sense because Canal's more or less a north/south road, and just, gah, look, if you're so in love with frickin' Manhattan, move there already. Or if it's too unironic for you, try some other neighborhood just dying for some frou-frou boutiques. Like Kings Highway or, I dunno, Passaic. Just leave us crabby Bostonians alone with our West Ends and Bullfinch Triangles.
"The idea is to connect this place more to Faneuil Hall."
Just great: A new place to take all the relatives from The City when they come up to see what interesting little projects you're doing up here in the hinterlands.
Thanks, I think, to Jay Fitzgerald for pointing out the story, which I'd somehow managed to miss.
