Re: General MBTA Discussion Thread

I was under the understanding once upon a time that some of this planned service for the NHHS included one or more trips Boston <-> New Haven via Hartford/Springfield. Is that still in the cards?

Re: Pierce Boston (née The Point )| Boylston St/Brookline Av | Fenway

The outlets are upsidedown? There is no upsidedown. If you don't like the orientation, it takes about 3 minutes to flip it.

Re: North Washington St Bridge

I hate articles that talk about income without indicating if their reference point is per person or household.

Re: AVA North Point II | Archtone phase II | East Cambridge

Keep in mind as well that this will be even more blocked from 28 by the Green Line bridge and headhouse once GLX is complete.

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

The garage at the end of Canal Street is much easier to get in and out of and usually has available parking on the first floor.

Re: 121 Seaport Boulevard | Parcel L2 | Seaport Square

...and then when developers try to recreate the older styles it usually gets labeled as Disney fake.

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

I'm talking about the Times building which was not saved. Bullfinch building was worth saving.

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

I don't know if I understand why it was worth saving. Based on this picture from page 1, the most recent facade was installed post-1973.

Re: Amazon HQ2 RFP

That's a poor argument, because a stadium is not useful or necessary. It's a fun toy. Transit improvements are useful and necessary; making them pay for themselves is a nice bonus.
