Politico reports the Seaport Lofts Condominium Association, which represents residents at 437 D St., has hired a lawyer in an effort to stop the Grand Prix of Boston race next fall.
The race, which would involve shutting down Seaport streets to let drivers of exotic sports cars pretend they're in Monaco, was never subjected to the sort of resident vetting such a major event would normally get - and committed the city to cover any overruns - the group says.
Mayor Walsh's office replies:
We will review the letter when it is received by the Mayor's office. We continue to be confident that this will be a great event for the city of Boston, bringing fans and visitors to our hotels, restaurants and shops on what is typically a quiet weekend.
