Tolls and East Boston Restaurants

hiddenboston | Nov 20, 2008 06:27 AM

After reading a related article in the Globe yesterday, I was wondering--with the state of the economy the way it is, if tolls increase sharply in the tunnels between East Boston and Boston, what kind of effect might it have on the East Boston restaurant scene? Between fewer people coming to Eastie and delivery costs going up because of the tolls, I feel that there could be a wave of closings--restaurants and otherwise--in Eastie.

Personally, if the tolls do double, I'll probably start taking the back way through the Chelsea warehouses more and more, even though the road is so bumpy that I need to wear a mouthguard just to drive on it.
