Abstract

This project assessed all sites petitioned for landmark designation in the neighborhoods of Allston/Brighton, Downtown and Roxbury. A database was created containing general information on petitioned sites in all of Boston's neighborhoods, and condition ratings and photographs from the sites visited. The database was structured to facilitate a user-friendly interface for the Boston Landmarks Commission (BLC). An analysis of the results revealed that outer Boston neighborhoods might need more petitioned landmark sites when compared to downtown.
