Re: Martin Luther King Jr. Memorial | Boston Common | Downtown

There are plenty of places on the Common that need some work or could do with some re-imagining, I don't think anyone would pick the space in between the State House and the Brewer Fountain though,...

Re: General MBTA Discussion Thread

North-South Rail Link? Fuck that.

Blue Line to Newton via Park Street? Yeah put that in there why not.

Re: Red Line / Blue Line Connector

Ditching North Station and Central Station in lieu of a Union Station that connects to both Aquarium and Haymarket is probably the better bet for giving the Blue Line a direct link to the regional...

Re: Green Line Reconfiguration

Yeah why stop at Dale Street when you can continue to Franklin Park?

In fact you could turn onto American Legion Highway and terminate at the shopping center there for some TOD opportunities.

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

Why do they keep redesigning this building. They had it much better one of the first two times?

Re: General MBTA Discussion Thread

Slowly downgrading an dismantling the transit system sounds responsible to me. Has nothing to do with any subconscious biases against ~*~other~*~ peoples.

Re: I-90 Interchange Improvement Project & West Station | Allston

Re: Fairmount Line Upgrade

A 'petition' is a bill. It had a hearing in September but didn't get reported out of the committee, so it will probably be reported out to the House in February at the deadline for reporting bills...

Re: Rosa Parks Boulevard

There are certain historical figures who absolutely do NOT deserve any modern recognition, like Columbus or Confederate figures and all of those need to be removed. I don't put the founding fathers...

Re: Rosa Parks Boulevard

The world does need significantly less monuments to Washington and the rest of the founding fathers and we have a million Washington Streets.

Re: I-90 Interchange Improvement Project & West Station | Allston

Unless there is a good bus connection someone wants to propose I'm fine with keeping it at just bike and pedestrian crossings from BU to Beacon Park. But even then you could make a dedicated bus...

Re: I-90 Interchange Improvement Project & West Station | Allston

I like how the street grid MassDOT penciled in is still, after all these years, composed of Commonwealth Ave sized streets. Can literally anyone at MassDOT read up on current trends in their field so...

Re: "Midtown"/Widett Circle in a non-Olympics Boston

Re: General MBTA Discussion Thread

Re: Crazy Transit Pitches

I suppose that you could build on the parking lots and redevelop the eastern side of University Ave to get more density, but the area seems boxed in.

If you're extending the Orange Line it's...

Re: Amazon HQ2 RFP

People talking about North Point keep forgetting that the Orange Line is close by as well, though you would probably need to work on improving that pedestrian connection.
