Library + Park = Faint Worthy

August 2, 2011 at 3:13 pm 3 comments

This spring my partner David experienced car trouble (squeaky brakes, anyone?) so we took his vehicle to the J & P Garage off Harvard Street, beside the Honan-Allston library.  We paid a lot for those repairs, but we also gained a little something standing in the dirt of the street near the garage on a busy weekday morning.

Once upon a time D and I were Friends of the Honan-Allston library.  He lived nearby in Lower Allston, so we were frequenters.  We attended one library celebration party in particular where we won two prizes in the raffle!  One of those prizes was a free oil change at J & P Garage.  David has been getting his car repaired there ever since.

How do these stories relate to a faint-worthy park?

Well, on that dusty morning, I noticed a little something behind the library.  D and I peered through the chain link fence and discovered this treasure.

    Wow, I don’t think I’d recognize the old neighborhood! Can’t wait to see it. Call me crazy, but I kinda liked the open field…

      The park is pretty rad and detracts from the giant hole in the ground not far away (Harvard project on hold?)

        Yup. Good old Harvard.
