Re: Crazy Airport Pitches

Just build a floating airport beyond the harbor islands:

Re: New Red and Orange Line Cars

I think it is fair for people to be skeptical of the Chinese government. I think it is also fair for legislators to not be experts on such technical matters - if they were experts, theyíd be wasted...

Re: General Infrastructure

So, has anyone else been unimpressed with the general response to this relatively minor snowstorm we had over the weekend? I donít think anyone got towed in Boston, and they barely plowed before the...

Re: Summer St. Gondola

I hope you donít mind me lasering in on one point, but since youíre the one that raised the issue of disruptiveness, in your prior post, I think it is valid to reach a conclusion. More specifically,...

Re: Summer St. Gondola

Re: Summer St. Gondola

It seems to me that most of the fo us is on how other options are better, and less on how a gondola would be bad. It would take up so little actual real estate that I really steuggle to understand...

Re: Regional Rail (including North-South Rail Link)

Another thought on NSRL/regional rail, as far as outreach and PR/marketing is concerned:

Re: Reasonable Transit Pitches

Are there any plans to redevelop the Braintree Station area?

I look at the plaza north of Union Street, with the Hobby Lobby, Best Buy, Staples, etc, and think it really is wasted potential. That...

Re: General MBTA Discussion Thread

I agree with this, kinda glad you said it first. Its not like people are changing physically that much in a decade, so as long as the design is human-centric, its not like it matters if its super up...

Re: Summer St. Gondola

The only actual negative listed there was the potential blight. That the Silver Line exists is not a negative, its just something else that could be done. The other two concerns are entirely...

Re: Idea for fixing the housing shortage

Re: Idea for fixing the housing shortage

If the market cooling is real, and we still need more housing built, then we need to make it easier and cheaper for developers to build more. That means simplying or eliminating regulations and...
