The Simpsons Shopping District

[ 17 ] July 17, 2012 |

Turning downtown Springfield, Oregon into a Simpsons-themed shopping district actually makes a tiny bit of sense, as cheesy as it would be, considering that downtown Springfield reminds one of a city like Canton or Schenectady more than Eugene or Portland.

    If a dinky little burg like Metropolis, Illinois can have a big-ass statue of Superman, why the hell not?

    Downtown Springfield. That used to be the part of Springfield that bordered the old Highway 126, called Main Street, up until the 70s when the town mallified (sic) and shopping moved around Centennial Boulevard. The full transition from pathos to bathos with the accretion of the Simpsons.

    Being the Eugene boy that I am, the only time I’ve spent in Springfield was for (1) going to high school basketball games or (2) heading to the dry side. Which beats the number of times I’ve been to Corvallis, which is once.
