Letters | CITY HALL’S HALF CENTURY

I WAS intrigued by Leon Neyfakh’s Feb. 12 article “The birth of City Hall.’’ As a landscape contractor, I have always been struck by the lack of green surrounding City Hall Plaza.

When Logan Airport was modified with the addition of vast amounts of elevated concrete ramps, it initially seemed cold and unwelcoming. Yet it was transformed with the addition of trees and greenery.

Why not do the same with City Hall? What a difference a natural blend of maples, birches, and other plants could make.
