Ladies and gents, the above is among the last maps you will ever need of our fair region and commonwealth, courtesy of Tim Wallace at the addictive Bostonography:
The Boston liquor license density map does a decent job pointing out the more popular hot spots for bars and restaurants. It comes as no surprise that the North End and Harvard Square have portions with a higher density than in other parts of the city. It may be interesting to see, however, that Davis Square has a larger concentration than Porter Square, or that the Harvard Business School and Athletic Facilities are in a very low spot. In all seriousness, though, such maps may be exactly what a prospective homebuyer or tenant needs to avoid that most obnoxious byproduct of urban life: the hammered local at last call.
