Don't walk past any big holes in the ground

Don't expect Boston to show a lot of charity to Faith Hope Consolo.

The spokeswoman for Prudential Douglas Elliman in Manhattan probably didn't win many friends around her with her punditry on why Vornado Realty Trust is about to lose its opportunity to hold up city officials for more cash to fill that hole in the ground in Downtown Crossing formerly known as Filene's.
“Beantown is very conservative. It’s a different town. It’s a town of relationships," Consolo opined from The Big Apple. “And I don’t think [Vornado] took the time to do that."
And to cement the notion that she didn't take the time either, Consolo offered the following advice to Mayor-for-Life Tom Menino.
“You have to give your mayor a Xanax. He’s got a developer that knows how to do things right. Everyone is in a holding pattern. It’s just a sign of the times.’’
It seems there is only one appropriate response to the Muse of Manhattan:

Yankees Suck.

She's right, I mean Menino has made a big deal about this hole in the ground, but nothing about the hole in the ground up the street where the Gaiety was. A similar situation (developers got Meninos approval to knock down buildings before they got money to build). Same result, yet the difference is we had to pay to relocate some strip clubs for that hole in the ground. Menino needs developers to shower him with love and money to get things done in Boston, and its a great inhibitor to our cities growth. Look at the harbor garage project.

Not disputing that Menino has messed up Downtown Crossing big time. I could live without the NYC condescension, that's all.
