Unicorn Park

Nope, that isn’t the name of a six year old girl’s fantasy-inspired birthday party or a geeky renaissance faire location. Unicorn Park is an office building, visible from I-93, which I pass daily on my commute. And it makes me chuckle every time.  

I work with all sorts of fabulous creatures...

I mean, how seriously would you take me if I told you my office was in Unicorn Park? You’d probably either think I was having serious hallucinations or be tempted to ask me what it’s like working with mythical creatures… Sarah, how grouchy are the trolls before their morning coffee? Do fairies only work at night, or have they adapted their schedules to correspond to the Street’s hours of operation? Are elves really that resourceful and hard-working, or is that just a clever image they manufacture along with their cookies?  

In my role as a “citizen journalist” I did a little investigating into this peculiar building name and found… nothing.  I have no idea why someone named a place of business after a mythical horse-like creature with a single horn in the center of its forehead.  I mean, unicorns are symbolic of chastity and purity – and fantasy worlds.  What in the world does this have to do with business?  

Reader(s), what’s your explanation?
