Re: Amazon HQ2 RFP

The President tweeted that the USPS wasn't charging Amazon enough to deliver the company's packages (he was actually criticizing Jeff Bezos, of course).

Putting Amazon next to the new USPS...

Re: Omni Hotel @ BCEC | Summer St | Seaport

I like the first rendering the best because I can look at it and see exactly where and when my dreams for a mixed-use, 30% residential neighborhood died.

Re: MBTA Bus & BRT

One of the few things I was happy to hear about incoming city councilor Ed Flynn is that he's interested in improving Seaport transit, specifically between Broadway and the Seaport down L / Summer...

Re: Summer St. Gondola

You have the BRT using the State Police ramp to get into the Ted Williams Tunnel but the regular SL continues to use the same convoluted route; why?

Re: Parcel K | Northern Avenue | Seaport

Hmm. Well what's been the plan for this? The parcels appear to be owned by the Commonwealth and not MassPort, not that it makes that much difference in the end, right?

I've never heard of anything...

Oh, boy. Post this on the internet and watch what happens.

Re: Amazon HQ2 RFP

Overall, the nation's homeless numbers are 13 percent lower than they were in 2010 and some communities have all but eliminated homelessness among veterans, emphasized HUD Secretary Ben Carson.

Re: Summer St. Gondola

On its own, good enough. But, yes, it can be extended, anywhere there's sky.
The Greenway, maybe?

And, yes, I think there's enough room down Summer Street - there was when they proposed an...

Re: Rosa Parks Boulevard

"Washington" may mean something to you and me but to most people, it's the name of a street, like Lafayette.

Re: Summer St. Gondola

It's a means of transportation for those going to and from the developer's new project and South Station. It's not more; it's not less.

Everyone loosen up your girdles.

Re: Boston in the 1960's

1) in the top photo, the area around Gillette (upper left corner of image) is cleared of any buildings - was this something new or was it always like that?

2) They buried the Artery through Dewey...

Re: South Bay Center Expansion | Dorchester

Coincidentally, Target Corp bought its building today according to the Registry. $12.25 million. Nice return on original developer's investment, I'd guess.

Re: Back Bay Garage Tower | Dartmouth and Stuart | Back Bay

Yes and there was some pushback from some South Enders including Mel King and ... what's his name. They wanted that to stay open so the 39 could park there. Instead, apparently the stop will be on St...

That's great news about Wayfair. They seem to have made a concerted effort to stay within the city. (A co-founder lives in the South End and can walk to work.) Admirable, and makes sense if they want...

Re: SBWTC /South Boston Waterfront Transportation Center | Seaport

They haven't added any "cladding" during the past few weeks, as far as I can tell. There was a person out there yesterday (Friday) so maybe some movement. My fear is that nothing will be done during...
