Occupy Boston is history in process

THE BOSTON Globe correctly points out the importance of allowing Occupy Boston to remain while insisting on the need for a cleaned-up site (“Menino should stick with policy of allowing Occupy Boston,’’ Editorial, Dec. 3). The city should work with Occupy Boston to make this happen rather than blocking attempts to bring health and safety materials such as warmer tents and a kitchen sink to the site.

Occupy Boston comes closer to realizing the original vision of the Rose Fitzgerald Kennedy Greenway than any of the earlier attempts to create civic venues such as a botanical garden, cultural center, or history museum. It is now one of the most visited sites along the Greenway, drawing workers, neighborhood residents, suburban families, religious groups, and buses of schoolchildren from across the region.
