Demolished for a motorway bypass.

I loved the house I lived in for six years while at uni, but I'll be the first to admit it was not pretty. So it was probably a good choice from a PR perspective to demolish it first. It made it look like they were doing the community a service rather than carving a community in two.

Construction on the motorway bypass that had been fought since the 60's was kicked off in late 2004 with the demolition of 323 Willis St.

A girl was there to chain herself to the bulldozer - I always said I'd lie in front of the bulldozers if the time came, but I'd been in Boston for 3 years by then.
