Re: MassDOT Pike Parcels 12 - 15 | Boylston St. and Mass. Ave | Back Bay

This is my favorite part of the article...how hard is it to align with something that will never happen!

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

That would be nice. But this was designed to look like a cheap cardboard box.

Wouldn't have thought this is tall enough to warrant an observation deck.

Re: The Taj hotel

Not getting the hate for the Taj flag. Granted, it is more of an Asian brand than some others. It was good enough for James Bond! https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Lake_Palace And I think Hillary...

Re: Kenmore Square North

My hound snout sniffs out a miserable dummy proposal, in comparison to which the actual drivel proposal will look like the Paris Opera House.

Re: The Taj hotel

I've stayed at the Taj Boston and the Taj in Alipore (Kolkata). The one in Boston is still nice, but dated. It is nice to have a working fireplace in your suite, though.
The one in Alipore is like...
