How do you track that in...

Re: Platform screen doors.

The issue for me isn't raw cost but believing there is an actual need, so I guess cost-benefit.

Re: Microsoft's $500 million affordable housing fund

The idea this would "stimulate" more housing is worth imagining.

On its own, yes, it's ridiculously small .. $500 million is 1,500 housing units (but it's not $500 million b/c half (?) is going to...

Re: The New Retail Thread

We're on D Street so in-between Seaport and South Boston, we use Peapods for orders and Foodies on West Broadway a couple times a week plus take-out.

Re: Marriott Moxy Hotel | 240 Tremont Street (Parcel P-7A) | Theater District

Compare this construction to that on Parcels 9 & 10. One is not much like the other, yet both are to be hotels. Amazing.

Re: Unions are Good! Or Bad!

The protesters start at 7 am. They stop at 5 pm. Then they all get in their cars and drive back to whichever suburb they actually live in.
