New Fenway Park’s design impresses many

Red Sox chief executive John Harrington, meeting for the first time yesterday with neighborhood leaders to unveil a proposal to build a new Fenway Park, began his presentation by evoking his own community ties.

He recalled growing up in Jamaica Plain, taking trolleys, and then walking, to Red Sox games as a child. He mentioned that an uncle had worked in the Pierce Building near the park. And he described his own work on development issues as a planning official in Westwood, where he resides.
