Boston Aims To Create Its Own 'Times Square'

Vendor stands in the way of Boston's plans to create a "world class theatre district."

"The city wants to build the ''Times Square of Boston," envisioned with towering lighted billboards and searchlights glazing the sky. The Hub Ticket Agency owner, who now sells from a trailer, has hired a lawyer and said he is fighting the development. He hinted that he might be appeased by a spot in a new building planned for the location, at the corner of Stuart and Tremont streets."
