As Beantown prepares to develop new public green space, the Boston Globe sends a reporter to check in on the lessons the city can learn from Millennium Park. He heads home smitten by the park and, even more so, with his sense of how The City That Works works: "The more you talk to Chicagoans, the more you're impressed with what can only be called civic patriotism." Sounds pretty right on to me.
