There’s a nice short piece on Worcester’s urban re-renewal on boston.com today.
I don’t really have a problem with a Theater District, except I think any proposed district should (a) include plans to rehab the Paris Theater and (b) stop spelling theater with an “-re” at the end. That really bugs me.
But why stop at a Theater District?
We could have a different district for every block! Think of the possibilities!
The area around the Palladium could become The Juggalo District.
The area around the Burnside Fountain could be The Pretentious Hispters With Dirty Minds District.
The CVS on Front Street could be the Sorry, you’re going to have to cross the Common to buy cigarettes District.
Instead of Worcester: a city of neighborhoods, our new catchphrase could be Worcester: a city of districts.
Does anyone have any other district suggestions?
