At this site, you should make observations of Mt. Vernon Street. This is currently the site of the Double Tree Hotel and the Bayside Center, which now houses UMass Boston office, Commonwealth of Massachusetts offices, and some private business offices (including the Dorchester Reporter's offices). This was formerly the Bayside Shopping Mall, which was built in 1967 and later replaced by the Bayside Expo Center, which was a conventional hall, in 1983.
Does Mount Vernon Street appear to you to be a neighborhood through fare? What changes in appearance might make it so?
