Re: Biking in Boston

Winter, so you say... Next time we're going to need to see a newspaper in the shot to confirm the date ;>

Re: North-South Rail Link

YES. And add to that the populated and walkable areas on the south side - including the entirety of the Fairnount line, Needham line, and Worcester Line out to Auburndale... along with Brockton,...

Re: The New Retail Thread

I have a faux-fur knee-length winter parka from Uniqlo, just a shade over $100. It's the warmest thing I've ever owned, and no animals were plucked or skinned in making it.

Re: General MBTA Discussion Thread

I believe I've heard that the stop signs on the hill are to test brakes before the descent.

Re: Encore Boston Harbor Casino | Everett

The base looks like it was flown in from the Bahamas. Will we be getting palm trees?

^ Always seemed to me to be a better fit for Copley... not sure if that's where it's moving. Copley is old-luxe and Pru is filling up with made-for-instagram brands. Not sure which is more...

Re: Bones of Boston

Great post, and great idea for a thread. It's amazing how many places like the kind you've described have actually "emerged" into better urbanism in the past few years. Barry's Corner, Dudley, and...

Re: Downtown Crossing

I wish the name "Downtown Crossing" would go away. It sounds like a strip mall you'd find in Aventura.

While we're at it, "Government Center" also stinks.

Oh, and just about every new street...

Re: Downtown Crossing

Black is an interesting trend. Have you noticed that nearly all new window installs use black muntins and sashes? I would never do that on my house... I think it's a passing fad.

Re: 128 Widening

The Kendrick Street exit has almost certainly taken traffic off of Needham Street. But, now Nahanton Street (the continuation of Kendrick in Newton) is backed up in rush hour sometimes all the way...

Re: Encore Boston Harbor Casino | Everett

I think that for most of East Somerville, a GLX station will be a shorter walk than the Assembly station, given that Assembly is almost at the furthest point from the residential neighborhoods....

Re: Reasonable Transit Pitches

In that case, some wayfinding signs at the Dean intersection would be useful, to point people towards the D line.

I used to live there and thought it would be amazing if they had a digital...

Re: Reasonable Transit Pitches

I agree on Brandon Hall but not Dean, which seems well-placed at a major intersection. How about Hawes Street? That stop always P'd me off.

Hey sorry, I didn't follow. What about this is exactly why Trump was elected? Spoiler alert: the swamp's not exactly getting drained.

Re: Bartlett Yards | 2565 Washington Street | Roxbury

Re: North-South Rail Link

It's a good pitch, and even more broadly I think the "branding" of NSRL aims too narrowly. The words North-South-Rail-Link simply evoke the poor NYC Amtrak passengers trying to get to Maine, who now...

Re: The Hub on Causeway (ne TD Garden Towers) | 80 Causeway Street | West End

Re: General Infrastructure

I grant you that steps to nowhere is a bit silly, but it does send the message "hey, look! you can hang out in DTX even if you're not sketchy, and look, it's actually a bit boojie!"

Re: Logan Flight Additions

Probably very much off-topic, but I've been noticing lots of new flights and possibly new airlines at T.F. Green. Anyone have the pulse on what's been cooking there?

Re: The New Retail Thread

I get it, but the reporter turned a potentially interesting comparison into an Aesop's fable with the moral that people of all stripes are nice. Barf?
