On Friday I wrote about The Boston Globe article that reported an unused train track could potentially connect the Seaport District to the Back Bay.
What the report didn’t say but can be gleaned from The Boston Globe map (shown above) is where Track 61 resides. If this new MBTA line comes to life, it would be a boon for more than just the Back Bay and Seaport District.
The South End’s Ink Block deserves a stop along Track 61
Track 61 runs past the new Ink Block development in the South End. With several hundred new condos and apartments currently approved to be built in this part of the neighborhood, it is worth considering how having a MBTA stop might help better connect the neighborhood. It also seems feasible that a stop could be created near the always congested South Bay in Dorchester.
