Re: Logan Airport Capital Projects

The roadways in and out of DFW have tollbooths, so anyone picking up/dropping off pays a toll.

Re: Cambridge Crossing (NorthPoint) | East Cambridge/Charlestown | Cambridge/Boston

Maybe the red car is just visiting from Stuttgart. Quite a drive, but I've seen cars and campers German plates on roads in this area (as well as during a visit last month to Death Valley).

Re: New Red and Orange Line Cars

500 miles, in the grand scheme of things, isn't really all that much. The Orange Line is approximately 11 miles from end to end. That's approximately 23 round trips on the whole line. Most of the...

Re: Our Lady of Good Voyage | Seaport Sq Parcel H | 55 - 57 Seaport Blvd | Seaport

Re: What are you listening to now?

A different take on one of my favorite Elliott Smith songs. Despite having been a fan of his for over twenty years, I never heard it before last January. I saw it just after seeing Call Me By Your...

Re: Alexandra Hotel Renovation | 1769 Washington St | South End

Ugh. Another building with a tumor growing out of it. What a mockery of preservation this makes.

Re: MBTA Bus & BRT

I was in Dublin a couple of weeks ago and had the opportunity to ride the buses there and didn't notice that. What I did notice was the quick acceleration that the buses (all Volvo, per Wikipedia...

Re: The Hub on Causeway (née TD Garden Towers) | 80 Causeway Street | West End

It will even benefit those farther out: commuters using the Commuter Rail. Instead of sitting in the waiting room, passengers can shop for their groceries and bring them with them on the train,...

Re: North Station, Charles River Draw, & Tower A

If its tenancy is the result of a long term lease and recorded at the Registry of Deeds, the City will usually list the lessee as the owner.

Re: Northampton Square Complex (24-Story Tower) | Albany St | Roxbury

Not sure, but this is a completely different project in a part that was to remain (mostly) unaffected by the tower project. The pool repair project consists of a depth reduction, new drainage system,...

Re: BU Development Thread

They're expanding the footprint out and towards the rear and have been driving sheet piles for the past week or so. I live about 150 feet away on E. Brookline St and every morning I get a nice...

Re: Boston - Most Embarrassing Blight That Tourists See

As a descendant of survivors who came here on account of that very famine (as well as some much more recent arrivals), I concur 100%. It belongs at the Museum of Bad Art.

Re: One Bromfield | 1 Bromfield Street | Downtown

I walked up it yesterday. I counted six empty storefronts out of a total of (I think) 29 storefronts.

Re: One Bromfield | 1 Bromfield Street | Downtown

How many empty storefronts are there? I walk up it regularly, and off the top of my head can think of no more than three. Next time I walk up, I'll do a count...

Hopefully they'll reopen their Faneuil Hall location soon, now that the HVAC work there has finished and the ground floor retail establishments are slowly returning. There isn't much good coffee in...

Re: The Hub on Causeway (née TD Garden Towers) | 80 Causeway Street | West End

I don't hate it, but if I was the owner of the W Hotel, I might have a problem with it. That's all I can see now: A giant W!

Re: Winter Garden | 100 Federal St. | Financial District

I love Red Barn. Their Faneuil Hall shop is temporarily closed while the building's HVAC is replaced, leaving me with very few places to get decent coffee in the area.
