Cambridge MA, A World Class City?

Two of the several sidewalk bars and restaurants on Mass Avenue in Cambridge MA. The Mayor said he wants to make Cambridge a World Class City. Huh? Permitting bars to clutter more than half of the sidewalk encourages visitors who want to walk and see the city, how? There seems to be a disconnect between what the Councilors see and what is in this formerly industrial working class city that is now an upper class academic enclave. It is like children who have eyes bigger than their stomaches. They want to make it so, and think that by saying it and wishing it, it will make Cambridge a world class city.
