Boston’s own mayor-for-life, Tom “Mumbles” Menino, prides himself on the fact that his city is a pedestrian paradise. He’s right–it is. Although a cynic may point out that Boston is also a driver’s third circle of hell. See, out west, people had time to design cities. Boston just sort of happened, and when they ran out of room, they filled in the ocean with trash and built luxury condos on top.
