    I am a second-year Landscape Architecture student at the Boston Architectural College. For one of my current classes, we are studying the Charlesgate area; this involves trips to the site to gather pictures, and data from the area. I am completely shocked by the horrific state of disrepair that the site is currently suffering from. It’s hard to believe that an area, once so beautiful, has been allowed to stagnate and fester. On my trips to the site, I have encountered overwhelming elements of pollution on every level; this includes soil, water, air, noise, and aesthetic. The underside of the Bowker overpass roadway is crumbling, and pieces of concrete fall dangerously to the ground; there is a contingency of vagrants, and evidence of drug use and prostitution in the area. Salt from the overpass is collecting in stagnant and fetid pools, which drain directly into the Muddy River. Large piles of trash are strewn everywhere, and I feel a tremendous sense of unease when I am at the site. I am completely horrified that an area like this even exists, and ashamed that this was allowed to happen.

    As a mother to an 8 year old boy who loves to play catch and kick a soccer ball, it’s sad to say that at times we can’t use the green in front of our building (between Charlesgate & Mass Ave) because it has become a loitering ground for homeless/drunks/drug addicts. The Bowker Overpass encourages & welcomes vagrants to the area showing them that we have the amenities for their lifestyle. Visitors to the neighborhood walking to Fenway Park must be horrified by what they see. I’m curious if the RedSox organization has an opinion in the matter. I hope that this petition is met with a positive response form the Mass DOT and BackBay/Kenmore/Fens community. Thank you to all that are putting your efforts and time into this cause.

    Hi
    I want to express my support for beautifying the Charlesgate area.

    Not only is the Bowker Overpass an eyesore, it is also dangerous. The Overpass itself is crumbling from below. Prior to the boards being installed underneath, cement would fall onto the sidewalk below.

    In addition, this part of the Emerald Necklace is unsightly and attracts a sketchy element. I do not feel safe walking there at night.

    The Fenway area is an intergral and important part of the city. Millions of visitors pass through this area each year. What they see and experience by Bowker is less than desirable. This is not the impression with which we want to leave our guests.

    There are other, more efficient ways to get traffic through and around this area. It’s time that we investigate those possibilities and act on the best opportunity.

    Bowker needs to go and the area needs to take its rightful place as part of the beautiful emerald necklace.
