Boston City Hall Plaza History

Boston City Hall Plaza was designed in 1962 as a public space to accompany the adjacent new City Hall. Both City Hall and City Hall Plaza were constructed between 1963 and 1968. The idea was to place the new City hall on the old site of Scollay Square which had become one of the seedier parts of the city. The idea was successful and it reinvigorated the immediate area, however City Hall Plaza has come under some scrutiny since its inception due to it not being an ideal place for public gatherings since it is too cold and wet in the winter and too hot and dry in the summer. Plans got underway to redesign both the plaza and City Hall in 2011 in response to the criticisms.
