Re: General Infrastructure

@Boston85, I had a very similar experience on two recent trips to pick up my daughter at Logan. Definitely something is very wrong with how vehicle logistics are being handled at the moment.

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

BU has long had a very nice MLK memorial.

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

That is what stepped me back from embracing, so to speak, that particular proposal. It's quite stunning, and although extremely relevant, I'm not sure it draws people in to it as a memorial. For me,...

Re: Crazy Transit Pitches

I think replacing existing rail with BRT will be a very hard sell. I would terminate the purple BRT line at Rozzy Square, do the one stop Orange Line extension, then leave the rest of Needham as is...

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

The renderings on the NPR article show it at Beacon, directly across from the State House. I agree, this one is very good.

Re: Kenmore Square North

CCA gets it, but I'd also be okay with Cadet Carl's idea. As for Yawkey Way, I can now confirm that the sign is gone, and it's Jersey St. all the way through, just as it once was.

Re: MBTA Bus & BRT

Excellent. Boston needs to consider an evening peak southbound lane for Washington St. in Roslindale. If Everett steps up, that might go a long way toward convincing Boston.

Re: Kenmore Square North

I disagree with you on the Citgo sign. It has a meaning in Boston that transcends association with the corporation or Venezuela's current government. I'm with you on Yawkey Way, but it already...

Re: Encore Boston Harbor Casino | Everett

I'll do it. Exactly once. I want to check out the boats, and every other aspect of this casino and related experiences. But generally speaking, I don't see myself doing it that way. However, it will...

Re: North-South Rail Link

Also worth noting, Federal debt, quite conveniently, never actually has to be paid.

Re: North-South Rail Link

The status quo won't work due to capacity constraints bumping up against increasing ridership demands. Yes, we can do some things for less, such as starting on the Transit Matters regional rail plan....

Re: North-South Rail Link

Just to clarify a bit, I've read a lot of stuff lately written by people in their 20s that follows a similar style to this piece and am pretty fed up with it. But you are of course correct that we...

Not saying this as a slam against millenials, but as I read it, I kept thinking that the author was incredibly immature. Turns out she's much older, but predominately a Herald op/ed writer, so, no...

Re: The Parkway Apartments | 1507 VFW Parkway | West Roxbury

This project looks quite transformative for the corridor, especially if it stimulates more and similar crossing in to the Dedham side. I'll be surprised if this happens as described, though. 258...

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

Aren't they in fact, two separate buildings? I thought the two sides of the atrium were structurally distinct from one another. Regardless, I agree that they certainly credibly look like two...

Re: Kenmore Square North

Ironically, I already will be in Kenmore Square this evening, but for a conflicting event (Redsox), so can only be at the meeting in spirit. Good luck, and thank you to the people who can attend.

Re: Crazy Transit Pitches

Since we're talking crazy pitches anyway, would it be possible to not think of these Rozzie/Hyde Park stops on the NEC as part of a longer distance line? What about an EMU shuttle from South Station...

They are also going to reposition some, or at least one, of the bus stops. Look for the South St./Taft Hill Court stop to move to the other side of the intersection, in front of the old Petco...

Re: What was Boston like in the [recent] past?

+1 and I also highly recommend Michael MacDonald's All Souls (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Michael_Patrick_MacDonald#All_Souls:_A_Family_Story_From_Southie) for another viewing angle.
