Re: Why is Chicago so affordable?

I haven't seen any serious evidence, but both Chicago architectural foundation tours I've been on have made that claim.

Re: Volpe Transportation Center Development | Kendall Sq | Cambridge

They could have some lights go off any time a cosmic ray goes through (there's a similar art installation on the hallway between the 5th floor of building 26 and the 4th floor of building 16 at MIT).

Re: Why is Chicago so affordable?

At least one reason is that Chicago used to have tons of railyards and stuff downtown, leaving swathes of open space to this day. Fortunately, it wasn't all squandered with low-rises. Compare these...

Re: Residences at 399 Congress St (formerly Madison Seaport Hotel)

Re: Green Line Extension to Medford & Union Sq

The POP enforcement in LA that I've witnessed consists of people scanning everyone coming up the escalator from the train.

Re: Greenland - Kangerlussuaq and Summit Station

Re: Analysis of Braess's Paradox in Boston

I believe all that is necessary is that travel time gets worse with congestion for the paradox to be possible.



It would be awesome if this was public (if it exists). What would be interesting...

Re: Do the Affordable Housing Laws Work?

Re: MBTA Bus & BRT

It really does back up sometimes (4- 5 pm?), not only in the tunnel but also the onramp onto I-90 E. It's a pretty short segment, so it probably doesn't add more than 10-15 minutes to the trip, which...
