Saw this on UHub (link here), as well as the 4 or 5 signs taped to the ground floor windows of the building….Interesting, because I totally agree…the railings look horrendous & I have yet to hear a North End resident say anything good about them. If they were off the beaten path that’d be one thing, however the building is right smack dab in the heart of the North End….a tourist haven.
Ed: This story made it on the 11 o’clock Ch. 4 WBZ news here. The design was first presented in 2014 at neighborhood meetings. Also, as mentioned in the comments, we did a poll back in March. For reference, the railings in question are shown below.
