Letter: Fond memories of Durgin Park


To the editor:

As much as Jim Shulman's columns take me back to memories of my youth, so did the recent announcement of the closing of Durgin Park in Boston.

I recall my parents driving to a gritty section of Boston, before gentrification of Faneuil Hall, standing in line on the stairway, sitting at a communal table with strangers, the dining room noise, the cornbread,the prime rib and topped off with a humongous strawberry shortcake.

Wayne Lemanski,
