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

The pieces by Ty Burr and Adrian Walker in today’s globe are the most anti-intellectual tripe I’ve seen in quite a while.

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

The memorial needs to fit into the context if it's going to be in the Common, plain and simple. Goes for anything that gets built here. I stand by thinking the bridge looks nice, but it's not...

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

The bridge one looks cool and is a great design. However, count me in as someone who would never support that big chunk of the common swallowed up for a monument to anyone. I wish Boston had more...

Re: Longfellow Place (née Garden Garage Towers) | 35 Lomasney Way | West End

I walk here every day and I think it looks great being able to see into the West End. The trouble is that you’ll never have good sightlines through the West End because all the building footprints...

Re: Kenmore Square North

Beton Brut & CCA nail it again.

Also - BB - so glad you linked to Kevin Lynch's photos of Boston — even as I read that I knew it would be one of the Lynch nocturnal neon photos. For those who...

Re: Kenmore Square North

Kicking and screaming didn’t refer to you but the general climate with which I disagree. And I do disagree with you. But that’s ok. The problem is that inconsistency is a fundamental quality of...

Re: Kenmore Square North

Before sounding off about Venezuela like that state rep did ten years ago, consider that they donated lots of fuel to poor people in this state. At least in recent history. Personally, I find the...

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

There might be some restrictions on US Highway routes that necessitated the removal of the designation. Just guessing that not allowing trucks might result in the fed not allowing the use of the...

Re: 500 Boylston Infill | 500 Boylston St | Back Bay

Why should the courtyard have to have “a point”? So we can “activate” the space? More “street level retail”? “Good urbanism?” No. I like the courtyard and the building exactly how it is... and to...

Re: General Infrastructure

Yeah, the square could use some bus reconfiguration overall. The current Taft/South stop is bad for cars and bikes as well.

Re: General Infrastructure

I thought the city had finished the project of reconstructing Roslindale Square, but this week they just installed a bunch of sets of those white posts to prevent cars from taking overly sharp turns...

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

I started Common Ground, but it was one of those books I started just before some busy period so I put it down and had to plan to return at a later date. The first 20 or so pages were excellent and...

Re: Bartlett Yards | 2565 Washington Street | Roxbury

Yes, the whole thing is already planned out. It's a bit of a waste.. not tall at all, and the height will get shorter and shorter on the edges that interact with the residential neighborhood uphill....

Re: The Residences at Forest Hills | 3694 Washington Street | Jamaica Plain

As long as they keep the commercial spaces, I'm fine with the taxpayers as they are. Usually with these kinds of projects they end up tearing out the small intimate commercial spaces and then...

Re: Four Seasons Tower @ CSC | 1 Dalton Street | Back Bay

I was driving south on Mass Ave thru MIT and then across the bridge, and saw this from that part of town for the first time yesterday. I have to say — this would have looked AWESOME if it was much,...

Re: Parcel U, Jamaica Plain

Totally agree. But, let's be realistic... nobody's going to be decking over those tracks for decades... Sad but true.

There are much cheaper ways the state could put in some small projects...

Re: The Residences at Forest Hills | 3694 Washington Street | Jamaica Plain

I'm depressed about this project. I guess it adds needed housing, but it's going to look like utter shit, and I think Forest Hills could have held out and gotten a better project. It's major hub...

Re: Biking in Boston

It just looks —*and is — sloppy. What would work OK is if they eliminated parking in the places where they bumped out the median. Then, the cars wouldn't be swerving into the bike lane.

Re: Parcel U, Jamaica Plain

These make a big difference on Hyde Park Ave - feels much less wide open now. Looking forward to this newer project being finished, too.
