  • You're saying you USED to go.....things change. I've discovered this place last year, went quite often, and have never sen a crowd of anyone, let alone any hotties. Met one cute guy earlier this year, but still not at all crowded.

  • The Esplanade is at it's absolute best in early June (before the concert season). Take it from a veteran Bostonian, guys... Those warm June evenings when Spring is at it's height are the best. I used to ride my bike from BU to the Hatch Shell on such nights ... and can tell you from experience that, that is when the hotties are out there.

  • went back in the middle of the week....had a great jo session with a wicked cutie. We were the only ones there, save for an old guy on a bench....not sure if he was cruising or just there, but it's not nearly as busy as the fens.
    But if there's a cute guy there, who needs more people?

  • Almost forgot about this place. Last summer I walked through one night late (after 11:00) and there were a few guys but not many. There's definitely potential. I was told by some buddies that the action picks up here when there is a mugging or beat down at the Victory Gardens that freaks everyone out. There are a lot of walkers, drunks, and homeless that wander through here at night. I've also seen Boston PD patroling the jogging path in their cruisers, and they are not opposed to getting out and seeing what's going on if someone looks suspicious.

  • I didn't even think this place was that cruisy in the summer. Last year I walked this place a few times on weekend nights, and only saw an old guy on one of the benches every once in a while, and one kinda skechy lookin dude on a bike. Then I'd walk back to the Fens.
