Boston 2024 released major portions of its bid document today. Boston Magazine has the details and bird's-eye views (including a planned beach-volleyball stadium and related structures that would take up much of the Common). One interesting bit, noticed by Ari Ofsevit, would turn Long Island into the shooting venue.
The bridge serving the island will be restricted for Olympic use only during the Games.
What bridge? The bridge a contractor is even now tearing down? Oh, yeah, that bridge. Those'll be some fun hearings the city of Quincy will hold on a new bridge, which they get to do because the bridge terminates there.
And what about the summer camp Boston runs on the island? Boston 2024 wants to use their docks for shooting spectators, volunteers and workers.
