Wjen the tracks came down it was like someone came along and took the roof off the neighborhood. While it is less noisy and certainly a lot cleaner Causeway Street lost it's distinct charm.

As a former Westender (Mclean St) I too miss that beautiful but ugly structure coursing the streets of Boston. When the West end was gone the city lost a lot of light. What should have opened the sky to parts of the city, the removal made our neighborhood dark and without life.
