Sarah Bourne snapped the plants where an escalator used to be at Center Plaza on Cambridge Street. There's a new public-access elevator to the left of the stairs.
Here's the solution to the T's never-ending escalator problems.
Convert them to more never-ending elevator problems.
Why don't we have the outdoor (and indoor) escalators like you see in Europe where they are barely moving until someone steps on to one, and then they accelerate to normal speed?
That would be better than plants.
Are you literally kidding? Europe??
The new public access urinal for the street population. Just like the T elevators. Sorry, but it's the truth.
... at some point in the distant past the escalator was an agreed condition of building, and either that has been forgotten about or the owner is hoping it will be forgotten about.
Is there a reason they got rid of the escalator?
It's bad enough that the T stopped putting in down escalators (downscalators?) years ago. Escalators are vastly better, with elevators as back-up for wheelchairs, strollers, and other mobility aids. Escalators move more people faster (you don't have to wait for them!) and people don't pee on them.
