A little about “The Hole”…

Officials break ground on an 18-story building slated to fill the long-vacant space on the corner of 8th and Main streets, site of Boise’s infamous downtown hole, on Thursday, July 12, 2012.  (AP Photo/Jessie L. Bonner)

As a huge fan of the tv show, Parks and Recreation, I can’t help but draw comparisons between Boise’s downtown “hole,” and the fictional town of Pawnee, in which a park employee (Amy Poehler) struggles to fill “the pit.”

In Boise, I like to think that “the hole” (which has its own twitter page)  provided just as much comic relief, and I’m kinda sad to see it go.
