Kennedy Library May Be Moved Outside of Mass.
There is a possibility that the John F. Kennedy Memorial Library may not be built in Cambridge.
Delays in clearing the Boylston Street MBTA yards--the current site for the proposed library--have led the library's trustees to consider abandoning that location, a Boston television station reported last night.
The Boylston Street site for the Library was chosen in 1964 with the expectation that construction would begin in 1967. But the MBTA has been unable to vacate the Boylston Street yard because Massachusetts legislators have blocked the development of a new subway car yard in Dorchester.
The Kennedy Library trustees, reportedly anxious to begin construction this year, are said to be considering Washington, D.C. as an alternate site.
