First, a few words on where I've been these last few months. (Nice to know I've been missed (http://architecturalboston.com/forum/viewtopic.php?t=621).) I'm switching from Northeastern's electrical...

The thought of going from Medford to, say, Harvard Square via downtown is pretty ridiculous. Either the Green and Red should connect, or the bus system should be better integrated (read: free...

Perhaps, but cost of living is a huge political issue. Politicians are always complaining about people leaving Boston for North Carolina (and perhaps other places too, but I always here NC). Sure,...

As a pedestrian, I totally agree on the shops comment. But, as someone who didn't know what a mansard is, I didn't realize that the roof didn't look right. Sure, it could have been more decorative,...

That's an interesting point I hadn't thought of. Still, parts of downtown are on the same harbor and don't shut down. Why should the Waterfront be any different?

No, I think you're right about it. I had better options in Rochester, NY than I do here, and not to knock Rochester, but that's just silly. I'd like to see one on Mass Ave across from the Christian...

I got a good PayPal story. You're supposed to verify credit cards with them via small (like 13 cents) charges on them. Well I cancelled a credit card before verfying it with PayPal, and now they...

I don't buy music, but I do like the music Virgin plays on the street corner there. It's a nice thing to walk through. So I'll miss that, although I can't say I did anything to keep it there.

I'm always baffled by this "Downtown Crossing is a bad space" talk. It's one of my favorite spots in the city, and the lack of cars is a main reason why. There, we can actually be on the street...

I'm really baffled why this doesn't happen. Would they not be profitable? I doubt that given how expensive this town is. Is it neighborhood opposition? Is the bureaucracy really that thick?

The issue with Longwood is transit. It's adjacent to the Green line and has the LMA shuttle from Ruggles/Orange Line, but that's only enough for its current build out + a little more. Remember,...
