Re: General MBTA Discussion Thread

Re: Winthrop Center | 115 Winthrop Square | Financial District

Re: Open Thread

I can't block anyone for obvious reasons (lord I wish I could) but if I remember it was just a blank post where that person's post would have been. Another drawback to being stuck with ancient forum...

Re: Boston Freedom Wheel | Long Wharf? | Waterfront

^^That's a great idea.

Then, maybe over time, we can lower it, then flatten it out, add enclosed cars and eventually put it underground.

Re: Temporary Habor Garage discussion thread until project is officially launched

Re: Temporary Habor Garage discussion thread until project is officially launched

I remember some folks (Harbor Towers?) being pissed about the IMAX because somehow the NEAQ was exempt due to non-profit status? I don't have time to research it right now.

Re: BGI Office Tower (Massport Parcel A2) | 401 Congress Street | Seaport

I read his reply to mean he doesn't like it because instead of looking like real people, they look like what some middle-aged designer think 'hipsters' look like (hence, 'minstrel show).

Re: General MBTA Discussion Thread

It seems that the really simple solution to that would be to make ever other (or every third) run an express run.
