Back Bay’s white elephant has got to go

Another Boston Marathon is in the record books, and Boylston Street has returned to hosting traffic instead of runners and hordes of spectators.

 

And for three days leading up to that event, the Hynes Convention Center relived its glory days as the place where some 30,000 runners picked up their bib numbers, browsed through the latest in running gear, and sampled energy bars.

 

But even the delight of 30,000 hopeful runners couldn’t hide the fact that this building, despite its relatively recent vintage, has seen better days. And like those old sneakers that have lost their bounce, it’s time the Hynes was retired.

“There’s nothing more rewarding to me than seeing a city-kid on a boat for the first time — smiling, confident, and amazed after catching their first fish. To keep our program running, we rely on the generosity and support of programs like the MCCA’s Community Partnership Grants. Their commitment to community programs, particularly youth programs, makes our small operation and all those smiles possible.”
