Re: Columbus Ave Student Housing | 10 Burke St | Northeastern University

When I lived in West H, for a few years in a row, I think it was the same price, no matter which floor I lived on, and I think I moved between 3 different floors over my time at NU.

Now that I...

Re: Blue Line extension to Lynn

We need a exploratory committee to consider doing a DEIR on the impact of doing a DEIR on the impact of presenting a bill before the State House to start digging.

And then we'll need to update all...

Re: North-South Rail Link

I agree, in general. But I have to think someone out there, regardless of whether it is Elon, could make some money off this project.

Re: North-South Rail Link

Has anyone tried asking Elon Musk and The Boring Company if theyíd be interested in digging this? I say this only half-joking; I have to think thereís some room for a public-private partnership to...

Re: North-South Rail Link

I think I'm on board with your opinion, especially your final paragraph. Quick clarification, could you explain "upstairs and downstairs" a bit? I'm not sure exactly what you mean there, and my...

Re: North-South Rail Link

Good info, F-Line. Not very pleasing, but good. It still leaves us with a good pitch for Fenway and TD Garden, though.

Re: North-South Rail Link

Thanks!



Absolutely. For Gillette, I think the traffic argument is better, since you *have* to drive or be driven there. Yes, thereís a commuter rail station at Patriot Place already, but my...

Re: Big Dig Tunnel--

I figured as much, but I wanted to cover the other possibility. Given how often this happens, we need to be less forgiving to those that do this.

Re: Big Dig Tunnel--

I'm sure we'll find out whether the company was directing the driver properly to avoid the tunnel or whether he was just following his directions. As far as civil damages are concerned.

But when...

Re: General MBTA Discussion Thread

No tax should be indexed to inflation. If they need to rise, then oir legislators should raise them.

I personally liked the last line in the piece about keeping it all local. Any chance you guys can get Dukakis on board with that? When I went to a NSRL presentation, he spent way too much of his...

Re: Boston Congestion Zone Charging

I so want to see the city stop giving free resident parking. If you already live in the city, you almost certainly donít need parking.

Re: General MBTA Discussion Thread

Why would you want to subsidize the poorer ends of the income spectrum? Iím inclined to think the the wealthier you are, the more youíre likely to conteibute to congestion.

Re: General Infrastructure

Anyone have any idea why Herald St, in particular, is so horribly congested every afternoon rush hour? The opposite direction streets, like Berkeley, are not nearly as bad in the morning.
