Re: Driven By Customer 'Service' Parte Dos

Sorry about the formatting but that's the way it was on their site. Seems they haven't discovered paragraphs yet.



Why should the trains have to slow down at all at any of these locations...

Re: Driven By Customer 'Service' Parte Dos

I think I was more annoyed about the fact that there is a 10mph speed limit than anything else mentioned in the story. Don't get me started on the several stop signs that are placed along the length...

Re: Allston-Brighton Developments

This vacant red house and the lot to its right on Allston St. (in Allston!) have been replaced by four(?) or so wood-frame townhouses, which are near completion, just north of the B line.

Re: Crossroads Initiative

I was just thinking about this project the other day and I'm happy to see some movement. Glad to see the intersections will be narrowed.

Re: The New Retail Thread

The space the smoker occupied, which took up a whole storefront space, now has a 'FOR RENT' sign in the window, I believe. New retail tenant someday?

Re: The New Retail Thread

Then you probably wouldn't be surprised to hear that it isn't very good. I think they put all their money into the sign outside as the menus behind the counter were spray painted stencil lettering on...

Re: The New Retail Thread

On a similar vein, the former Winter St. Staples space has a new tenant. Guess who, it's an easy one!

Re: Where am I? The photo contest

I think this is the headhouse for North Station on the north side of Causeway St. The sea of loose gravel was the biggest tip-off for me.

Re: Allston-Brighton Developments

Yup, that's the spot where those foundations are. I'm surprised that rundown house that was there before didn't mysteriously burn down a while back.

I have it from a source that the columns holding up the (historically landmarked) headhouse were in much worse condition than was first observed. Delays, ho!
