Hyde or Canary Square?
A post about shoplifting at a CVS touched off a conversation about borderlines in Jamaica Plain.
There’s Jackson Square, Egleston Square, Hyde Square, Forest Hills, the Downtown Centre Street area, the S. Huntington Corridor area, the pond and…Canary Square?
Thursday’s story about shoplifters arrested at CVS – 467 Centre St. – touched off a conversation about the name of the area in which the convenience store is located. While the headline of the story referred to it being in Hyde Square, some commenters said this was actually now known as Canary Square.
Other commenters, however, called the area Hyde Square, arguing that there is actually no such thing as Canary Square – other than there being a restaurant on South Huntington Avenue which bears the name.
Boston is a historic place. Though there are several officially named landmarks around the city, the names that often stick are not necessarily the official ones on the books.
That being the case: Is the CVS in Hyde Square or Canary Square? Leave your opinion in the comments, and please be sure to back up your argument.
