Okay, everyone. I saw this last summer, and forgot about it – what’s wrong with this picture?
Whoever composed this sign doesn’t realize that Kenmore is closer to Fenway Park than the Fenway station, that’s what. I think this falls under the category of “everyone knows this”, except that I have had many experiences riding the D train with disoriented visitors from out of town wondering why all the other baseball fans were getting off at Kenmore, which is obviously not the station for Fenway Park. Isn’t it?
(Just a reminder that in this 15 degree weather, spring will again come and people will care…)
When I saw the signs last summer I wondered the same thing. The only logical reason I can think of the signs going up is because of the ongoing construction at KENMORE and the T wants to spread the traffic going to games around.
However the summer of 2007 will bring major construction to the D Line and the station will be closed from August 2nd to September 2nd. KENMORE promises to be a real mess during Red Sox home games.
When the Riverside line opened in 1959 the station was actually named Fenway Park which created a lot of confusion and it was shortened to just Fenway years ago.
