DISNEY PRESENCE IN BOSTON GREETED WITH UNCERTAINTY
Published August 9, 1995
Walt Disney Co.'s interest in developing property on Boston's waterfront was "met with more questions than enthusiasm," according to the BOSTON GLOBE. Boston Mayor Tom Menino: "One of the things Boston needs immediately is a convention center." President of the Greater Boston Convention and Visitors Bureau Patrick Moscaritolo said Disney would likely encounter the same opposition that surfaced to proposed baseball and football stadiums in South Boston (Richard Kindleberger & Adrian Walker, BOSTON GLOBE, 8/9). An editorial in the BOSTON HERALD says Massport Exec Dir Steve Tocco's motive behind pushing a Disney presence in Boston is that it will make everything, including a baseball and football stadium, "look remarkably small, do-able and low-key by comparison" (BOSTON HERALD, 8/9).
