What the Heck Is Going On With That Ugly Garage Near the Aquarium?

The hideous Harbor Garage is one of the biggest eyesores left in downtown Boston. To add insult to injury, the unsightly concrete block squats on one of most valuable tracts of waterfront in Boston, just down Atlantic Avenue from Rowes Wharf and right on the new Greenway.

However, while everyone agrees that getting rid of the bunker-like garage next to the New England Aquarium would be a plus, what to put in its place has devolved into a classic, years-long, knock-down, drag out, thoroughly petty but thoroughly Boston development spat.
