I only know of Boston post big dig and have heard from friends that getting in from the south part of Boston to the airport was a disaster, basically if you didn't live on the northshore getting to Logan was a nightmare.

Yes Particually because there is only 2 lanes of Taffic (each way), and the Blue line Crossing Boston Harbor to East Boston, and the Connection to the Mainland is 1 road going onto the North Shore.

And it equalizes the playing field. You don't have to worry about somebody rolling up to the laundromat in an Aston-Martin stealing your shine.

It is fairly easy now. Funny, people in LA complain about the Green Line not connecting directly to LAX, but that is exactly the case in Boston too.

The greenbelt that was left in the wake of the freeway is a bit odd because it is a big open space in the otherwise compact downtown area, but it is a nice respite from the hustle and bustle of financial district.

In real life, Iíve met very few people in the Bay Area who have anything good to say about Los Angeles, while my friends from back East have used words such as ďamazingĒ to describe their visits to LA.

Good observation. This place can be a parallel universe.

It isn't about showing off. It's about convenience. Picking up your date, taking her someplace nice, and then dropping her off without having to ride around in a subway. I'm sure the New Yorkers who don't drive use cabs in this instance, but THAT'S ALSO A CAR. Pretty useful invention, eh?
