Boston's Topnotch Parks; South End Sidewalk Patterns

BOSTON—The dark green represents parkland; the light green represents areas of the city serviced by said parkland; and you don't wanna know what the orange means. It all comes from a new ranking by the Trust for Public Land: "The organization took America's 50 largest cities, and evaluated their parks using criteria like accessibility, size, and city investment and amenities. Boston tied with Sacramento and San Francisco for third place, bested only by Minneapolis and New York City." [Daily]

SOUTH END—The bricks don't quite line up on Lawrence Street, according to one resident: "Who chose these bricks? These bricks do not match the look or feel of the existing South End brick sidewalks, Please look into this ASAP AND GIVE ME A REPORT BACK thanks" [Hub]
