Push to rename Barry’s Corner “Allston Square”Posted on January 5th, 2014 No comments
There is apparently an effort going on to rename Barry’s Corner, the area of Lower Allston in the vicinity of North Harvard and Western, to “Allston Square”.
There is acknowledgement that this is an attempt to disassociate the area from the demotion that took place to give us the former Charlesview complex.
Should Barry’s Corner go the way of Scollay Square and the West End? It has in the sense that privately owned single and multi-family homes are gone and will likely never be replaced, but is the name so offensive that it needs to go too?
