“The Mods”), which went up in the ’70s as temporary housing for baby
boomers.

Notes to answerer
Asker: poco dopo c'è questa frase "Outside the Mods that Friday night, Chestnut Hill swarmed with students searching for alcohol or stumbling home from having had too much" quindi se non traduco, diventa... "fuori dai Mod"?
