Re: Assembly Row (Assembly Sq Redevelopment) | Assembly Square | Somerville

Re: General MBTA Discussion Thread

Porter makes the same mistake that most modern transit stops (inexplicably?) make. They try to BE a place instead of existing WITHIN a space.

Re: Green Line Extension to Medford & Union Sq

Re: Boston (née New Brighton) Landing | New Balance Complex | Brighton

Remember Beacon Park was a horse track before it was a railroad yard, so the name has a history of sticking.
