Re: State Street HQ | One Congress | Bulfinch Crossing | West End

Yah, it looks weird to have a sign on a glass building, unless it's a box like PWC

Re: Encore Boston Harbor Casino | Everett

The traffic from Wynn is overblown. Assembly will still probably have more daily users, when it's built out. But I don't hear the same outroar about Assembly.

Re: Encore Boston Harbor Casino | Everett

It's a 25 min trip non express, and a 20 min trip express.

Reliability wise, I've taken the Haverhill daily, and i'd say you have a minor delay (5-10 mins) about once a week, a major delay (over...

Re: State Street HQ | One Congress | Bulfinch Crossing | West End

No pictures, but when I walked by this today it looks like they're taking off an additional floor of the garage.

Tangent, I don't think you've ever driven Sullivan during rush hour. Sullivan would turn into gridlock with 2k extra cars.

What i'd like to see is better service to Anderson Woburn. There is a...

Re: The Boston "what if" thread

I don't think traffic would be any better.

Boston is too dense for cars. The mid 20th century mindset that cars were the future has proven to be false.

Re: archBOSTON Update: A New Dawn

Thanks Tim

I think we all have some grievances for how this process was handled, but none of it is on Ed. I think we should give Ed a chance.

Re: State Street HQ | One Congress | Bulfinch Crossing | West End

If true, that means that the garage should be coming down ASAP.

I'm excited. I was also worried that the garage would stay up after the office and residential towers were built.

Re: Crazy Transit Pitches

I don't see there being any appetite for a Provincetown train from Boston, since the ferry would be much faster.

Re: General MBTA Discussion Thread

That's far from the biggest issue. Destroying the horribly outdated signal box is why it's taking so long to fix.

I don't disagree with him, but it's sort of non specific.

Re: archBOSTON Update: A New Dawn

Any reason why Statler is no longer mod?

He was a good mod, I think. It's fine if he wants to step down, but I was just wondering.

Re: Regional Rail (including North-South Rail Link)

Traffic is getting so f-ing terrible though. Without transit, the region can't grow.

No offence man. You're a great contributor.

Re: General MBTA Discussion Thread

I'm going to make a partially educated guess and say that this red line derailment was some sort of mechanical failure.

Re: archBOSTON Update: A New Dawn

^Sorry, but I don't agree with DZ and Stick as mods. They are way too controversial. I'd rather have someone like Data or Beeline.

I'm glad that this site finally has an active admin.

I don't mind some unobtrusive adwords. I just hope that the new owner can monetize the site without annoying popups.

Apologies for the twisted image, but it looks like they're demolishing part of the garage.

They're only going toe deep, with infrequent flights for only a month and a half.

There is already a bunch of competition on that route. Spirit, Jetblue, and Delta all fly there. Plus you have...

Re: Reasonable Transit Pitches

In lieu of montvale, something near Salem St in Woburn would be still be near to Woburn center, and there's more plots of land where a parking lot could be built.
