Re: MIT East Campus - Kendall Square Gateway | Cambridge

Re: Biking in Boston

Im skeptical it will be the entire length of Albany, since the road narrows beyond Mass Ave... but it would be nice.

Re: Biking in Boston

It actually disgusts me that BU is allowed to have a 9 foot fence across their property, that walls off the road of the medical campus that runs all the way to the end of the curve of the Mass Ave...

Re: Biking in Boston

Henry, this was my regular bike loop when I lived in JP - SWC to Seaport, then thru the city to Storrow and back home. The route above is the way to go. Only minor variation for what I usually do is...

Re: Roslindale Developments

Yeah, such a project will require a lot of traffic analysis... I think the car circulation benefit would be an overall shorter cycle at Corinth/Washington, but the drawback would be the need for...

Re: Roslindale Developments

Thanks Henry. I don't mean to be as acerbic as I sometimes come off as... but having lived in JP for years, there was a very strong sense that the "real" first wavers represented the "real JP" and...

Re: Attleboro Downtown Redevelopment

Re: 40 Trinity Place | 426 Stuart Street | Back Bay

Re: Roslindale Developments

Well, I think the question is, who is the ďneighborhoodĒ here, since the square is more an intersection of different hoods. Iíve lived here for a year and a half, so havenít been to enough...

Re: A navigable Muddy River

Thanks. The difference is that once you get along the green line, the width of the linear park is much greater than the parcel that was recently daylighted. So, bank restoration and park...

Re: Roxbury parcels 9 & 10 | Melnea Cass Blvd | Roxbury

1. Your original argument was based on fury that the neighborhood (which apparently you just moved into) defeated a proposal that was bad for commuters, the state, and the neighborhood.

Re: Roxbury parcels 9 & 10 | Melnea Cass Blvd | Roxbury

Have you ever actually set foot here? Just curious. You showed two pictures. I clearly recall the condition and I stand by my memory. As I said, I have ridden along this route regularly since 2007,...

Re: Roxbury parcels 9 & 10 | Melnea Cass Blvd | Roxbury

You are dead wrong. I first rode the MCB bike trail in 2007, possibly earlier, and have used it regularly to get to South Boston as part of one my go to bike loops ever since. I remember the very...

Re: Roxbury parcels 9 & 10 | Melnea Cass Blvd | Roxbury
