    It appears that downtown is suburbanizing itself, by attrition. Yuck.

    How about a big municipal lot that connects to the train station and a free bus that just goes in a loop?

    Sure stopped the people coming to X Factor, Pride, Waterfires, high school graduations at PPAC, the Lion King, Brown Commencement weekend…
