Boston’s more architecture-conscious residents may finally be getting their prayers answered. On Monday, Mayor Marty Walsh put out a call to re-imagine the look of the infamous City Hall Plaza. According to BostInno, the mayor acknowledged that City Hall inadequately reflects “the kind of next-generation creativity and innovation teeming among its residents and businesses.”
The mayor has encouraged interested parties to submit their ideas to re-imagine the plaza using the City of Boston website or, for people hip to the social media world, over Twitter by tweeting at @marty_walsh and @notifyboston using the hashtag #CityHallPlaza.
We agree with Mayor Walsh that Boston is teeming with next-generation creativity and innovation, and so to showcase that, here’s a roundup of some of the best tweeted suggestions for the plaza we’ve found so far:

We initially thought this was a tweet from a Chili’s rep, but no. Sincere fandom.
