GE is coming to The Hub. And Governor Charlie Baker will probably find a way for taxpayers to pay for it.
General Electric's Boston roots are an old story. I drove through the Fenway when this news broke, on the way to the Museum of Fine Arts. Upper Boylston Street continues to transform. There are new condos going up everywhere. The old town is unrecognizable. If GE does move to Boston, the old capital city will have taken another giant step toward Manhattanization.
