Our view: Olympic dreaming on the North Shore


The fact is, many Olympic events are played out at venues that are miles from the games’ host cities. And Cape Ann, along with other North Shore communities, has an advantage over other areas through its working commuter rail system and decent highway access.

Look, there’s no need to start placing your ticket orders for the summer of 2024. But let’s hope that if Boston and state officials engage in a serious pursuit of these games, they’ll make the North Shore a part of it. We may be more ready than most.
