Walking In A Wint... err.. Revolution Wonderland?
The Wonderland site is just north of Boston and accessible by Rt. 16 and Rt. 1A as well as being accessible via the MBTA Blue Line which terminates at Wonderland. There are infrastructure concerns as the area is notorious for it's traffic problems including multiple rotaries in the area. The area is slated for a larger waterfront redevelopment as well but that seems to be delayed.
We here at TDIF feel that despite the traffic concerns this would be a good location although not as optimal as the previous Somerville site. The site is within the Metro-Boston area, and within the "urban core", accessible by public transport, close/in diverse ethnic communities and in an area desperately needing a major project and overhaul. We will end on these 2 words as food for thought... Beach Tailgates.
