The scoreboard that hung in the old Boston Garden until that arena was demolished in 1998 is apparently up for grabs—or at least on its way to a new home.
The device had loomed above the food court in Watertown’s Arsenal Mall. But that mall is being partially demolished to make way for a massive adjoining development called Arsenal Yards. The developer of that project recently confirmed that the scoreboard was now in the possession of another developer, National Development.
And! The managing partner of National Development, Ted Tye, on August 7 solicited ideas for the scoreboard’s future via Twitter.
So if you happened to have come into possession of this great relic from the old Boston Garden, what would you do with it???? @nationaldevelop #HomeForTheScoreboard pic.twitter.com/p1Mg85xSXT— Ted Tye (@tyeguy44) August 7, 2018
Tye has so far declined to say what he might ultimately do with it, though an announcement could come next month. Stay tuned.
