Local blogger-extraordinaire Adam Gaffin takes issue with a recent Globe story on the “flaming manholes” of the North End.

I can’t get some marvelous reportage in the Globe the other day out of my head. In his story about the North End’s flaming manholes of death, reporter Michael Naughton brilliantly described the area:

The neighborhood, which is popular with tourists looking for an Italian meal, is also home to a number of college students.

Why can’t we do that for every other neighborhood and town in the area?

Allston/Brighton: The neighborhood, which is popular with motorists cutting through to Newton, is also home to a number of college students.

Roslindale: The neighborhood, which is popular with tourists getting lost on the way to the Arboretum, is also home to a number of prominent bloggers.

So what other “The neighborhood, which is popular with X, is also home to a number of Y” constructions can we think of?

His readers have some clever suggestions.
