The Pros: Assembly Square over Wonderland

It's a question that's being asked: Why is Assembly Square a better site for a potential Revolution SSS than Wonderland? Both certainly have their merits, but here's the case for the Somerville site:

Here's a quick rationale:

  1. Assembly Sq. is directly accessed by vehicles via I-93, the major north-south highway servicing the greater Boston area. Wonderland is accessed by Route 1A, which requires a bit more routing off of major highways such as Route 1 or I-90 (which has tolls).
  2. Assembly Sq. will have its own Orange Line stop on the T, 3 stops from North Station, 5 from Gov't Center. Wonderland is at the terminus of the Blue Line, 10 stops from Gov't Center.
  3. Assembly Sq. is significantly closer to the heart of downtown Boston, increasing not only its perceived visibility but also its inclusion in the Boston sports market.

Editor's note: Anyone else agree with Weber King about this? Is Somerville a better location than Revere? Are we forgetting about North Shore Revs fans who are marginalized even now by the Foxboro location? Let us know in the comments!
