Re: Flickr Finds

Ummm, racist much?

This is pretty ridiculously offensive. Mods - is it OK to spew this sort of racism on the forum?

Re: Fenway Area Redevelopment

That's really too bad. 104 and 108 Hemenway are classic Fenway architecture.

Very unfortunate for the tenants who suffered innocently.

Re: Worcester Improvements

The Visigoths of Worcester must be happy to have decimated one of their city's major landmarks for the last century.

And for poaching a minor league ballteam from another New England city. And for...

Re: Quaker Lane + Congress Square | Downtown

Why in the name of puck did they commit this senseless act of barbarism?

Is the subcontractor working on the windows a native of Heathen Worcester, where Urban Redevelopment lives on at its worst?

Re: Julie Hall | Brookline Ave | Emanuel College | Fenway

So this looks not only like one of Dallas' least-fortunate buildings, but also like one of Chicago's (Hyatt Regency)?

... Impressive!

Re: Emerson College - Little Building Addition + Renovation | 80 Boylston St | Downto

Are they returning the original (terracotta?) facade elements on top of the updated steel frame? Or are these newly manufactured replicas?

Re: Logan Flight Additions

Were there really no previous KLM flights to Logan? I thought for sure KLM flew here -- maybe they did years ago and are returning after a hiatus?

Re: Official City Hall Plaza Proposals

Agree with the view Toby, Van and others have voiced that City Hall Plaza isn't worth investing in until it's being built upon.

With regard to the sub-question that Statler and Bronson raised of...

Re: The Boulevard (née The Times/Littlest Bar) | 110 Broad St | Downtown

Ditto. This would be a nice addition in so many other places - but as it is, it erased a piece of history that nicely filled the urban tapestry.

I think the best thing the city can do for the...

Re: Downtown Crossing

So they essentially trashed 150-152 State Street, eh?

That's just ... barbaric.

What developer and 'architect' were behind this hit-and-run?

Re: The Taj hotel

Even if the Ritz was never HQ'd/founded/etc., in Boston, I'll give Rifleman that the Ritz was a name generations of Bostonians knew as one of the city's fanciest hotels. I assume when the re-branding...

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

Seems appropriate that once-great, now-pathetic Internet brands should occupy a site once home to a great and beloved building, and soon to be hijacked by a pathetic encroachment on the skyline.

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

Holy Christ is the new design terrible.

It looks like a fatter, less-elegant version of Mukesh Ambani's home in Mumbai -- which itself is as elegant as CVS jewelry.

The previous design had...

Re: 115 Winthrop Square | Financial District

Re: The Huntington | 252, 258, and 264 Huntington Avenue
