May 27, 2011 A Golden Building Celebration in Fields Corner
On the first sunny afternoon in a long time, a crowd of nearly 100 well-wishers gathered in Fields Corner for the ceremonial ribbon cutting at the newly-renovated Golden Building. Co-hosted by Historic Boston and Fields Corner Main Street, Mayor Thomas Menino served as the keynote speaker and presented Stephen Golden?s family and the tenants of the building with giant checks reflecting the City?s $75,000 grant funding that the project received.
Mayor Menino put it well when he said that well designed and carefully executed projects like this ?prove that historic preservation can enhance not only the physical and economic health of a neighborhood but also uplift the spirit of the people who live, work, and shop in Boston?s historic neighborhood commercial districts.?
