Highly abstract. Just trying to stimulate conversation and look at how BP could manipulate words while still pointing back to the subject matter.

Some of you know that I like the Hatch Shell. That would be an area of his direction, meaning Arthur Fiedler.

While we have no clear way to determine exactly what these lines mean, I’ll add to the possibilities.
Many prominent statues of men and woman are found all over the parks throughout the country. At one time, I was convinced that the pointed arm/hand on Paul Revere’s statue was Paul giving us his direction.
No clue what the intended meaning is, but taking 5 steps in the direction that a statue is pointing could fit the bill.

It seems more likely to me than jumping on a subway and sitting on your ass for 5 stops.

This interpretation is supported by the Japanese clues. We're moving in a very small area because we possibly start right on top the casque which is why he can't give us any tips at all.

The cleverist. I've come to believe we're missing the mark on a lot of these because we're trying to instill meaning to the clues and adventure to the hunt. We want this to be The DaVinci Code or National treasure and go here and there in search of an X spot.

Boston specifically? Maybe we're trying to describe a path when we should really be describing where we're standing already.

You still have to arrive at the spot though. Even if the path is super short like Chicago.

You're preaching to the choir on this one. There is decent stuff elsewhere but I agree, that is the most logical reason for no hints.

How does this fit?

Is it supposed to be something like a handwriting exemplar? https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Handwriting_exemplar
A text where every letter of the alphabet exists in upper and lower case...
