Back in the summer of 2014, I was walking to Faneuil Hall when I noticed this hole in the ground with "temporary" barriers protecting it. For reference, this is 175 feet south of City Hall and about 250 feet south of the former Adams Square MTA station. The only signs were the words, "TRANSIT POLICE" on the temporary barriers. These barriers were not designed to be protective barriers and their only reinforcement were sand bags.
I have no idea how long this "temporary" structure had been in this condition before I first noticed it. It wasn't fixed in 2014. Nor was it fixed in 2015. Not until December of 2016 did I first notice that the temporary barriers had finally been replaced with a permanent, strong structure.
So where do these stairs lead? There are no signs so the MBTA must not want you to know.
