Re: Bartlett Yards | 2565 Washington Street | Roxbury

While normally I would agree with you, I think thatís reflective of a bias we both have... And which I was pointing outÖ That poor people donít care about the architecture. I think we should be...

Re: Bartlett Yards | 2565 Washington Street | Roxbury

Why is that? Would you say this about a different project somewhere else?

Re: Kenmore Square North

BB, I appreciate the perspective, but the bloated entities Iíve alrsady ranted about are a really serious problem. Boston could be so much more than it already is if only there were good...

Re: Kenmore Square North

Looks like an office park in Rt 128. This city is so disgustingly and disappointingly corrupt - it really is utterly demoralizing. The fact that there is such absurd lack of any standard and the...

Re: The Residences at Forest Hills | 3694 Washington Street | Jamaica Plain

I canít find the old thread so Iím gonna post it here. I am absolutely sick to find that Harvest has closed. As anyone who went there knows, they had been in financial straits for quite some time. ...

Re: Market* Central (nťe Mass + Main) *mostly residential | 415 Mass Av | Cambridge

Was driving down Columbia from inman the other day, was pretty jarring coming into Lafayette square... much more so than seeing the site from mass ave.

Re: Bulfinch Crossing Residential Tower (GCG Phase I) | 50 Sudbury St | Gov't Center

This pic says it all- why the hell are there four lanes of traffic? Why is this street one way in the first place? Sudbury, Congress, New Chardon, Staniford - all have a very long way to go before...

Re: BU Data Sciences Center | 665 Commonwealth Avenue | BU Central

Re: BU Data Sciences Center | 665 Commonwealth Avenue | Kenmore Square

There's parts of Boston that don't have neighborhoods. Ever since the Germanic impulse to categorize everything, under the (false) assumption that all things can be equalized and organized into...

Re: South Boston Infill and Small Projects

Interesting - on page 13 you can see the old ROW for the old Broadway & Broadway bridge, across the rail yard.

Re: Worcester Improvements

Re: Worcester Improvements

I was talking about nationally, but it still applies here, too. If things hadnít shifted nationally someone else wouldíve come in and taken over the streetcar system. Worcester wouldnít have...

Re: Biking in Boston

Henry, thanks - I had looked at that page, but on my phone so I didnít see the map in any great detail. Since I think you are in Roslindale, where I recently moved to, I would add that I was excited...

Re: Happy 100th Birthday, Paul Rudolph!

Re: Biking in Boston

Columbus, yes. But I would guess that it wont be too far in the future that the cobbled median will be removed and we'll have a flexpost-protected system there.

Re: Worcester Improvements

I think the issue here is with the word "conspiracy". As Halcyon points out, companies buy other companies and mothball them if they're competition. It's just the way it works. That's what's...

Re: Biking in Boston

Technically, yes, but it's not a good connection for a couple of reasons:

First, no matter what you do for safety, Mass Ave is always going to be busy, with lots of lights, start-stop, tons of...

Re: Innovation Dist. / South Boston Seaport

Well, both can be true. Those bike lanes look very narrow... I donít know how protected Iíll feel on them. For a brand new extremely wide road, Iím certainly not settling for calling this a huge...
