The Green

There is absolutely no question whatsoever that our Green is beautiful.  But let's calm down a bit about the Atrium and put it into perspective (no pun intended).  Some beautiful structures line the Green's East Side but the pictures that follow show a swath of ill-fitting, non-New England structures on the West Side.  In fact, there are only three buildings on the West Side that have any charm or historical meaning: the building that houses Tivoli, the Bank building and the Cramer and Anderson property.  Remember that a huge fire destroyed most of the West side long  ago.  Have a look at  the other properties and tell me that they're what you have in mind when you think of the Green:
