Hospice of Cultural Institutions

Map of what might have been:

A gallery of the cultural morgue:

There were once grand plans for new, exciting buildings to be built on or around Boston’s Rose Kennedy Greenway, the long strip of land that was created out of the Big Dig.

However, due mostly to financial woes, the projects are dead, with the YMCA of Greater Boston becoming the latest in a series of nonprofits to cancel plans for a facility on the edge of the downtown park system.

Of course, at the very least, that unsightly elevated highway has been laid to rest.
