Re: Boston - Most Embarrassing Blight That Tourists See

How about 'Boston - Most Embarrassing Blight That Tourists Smell'?

Walk the North End on a hot summer day and you can smell the sewer system. What specifically causes that? Is there an "easy" fix?

The Grand Junction will again be removed from service when the Mass Pike realignment kicks up.

Re: Boston Skyline Photos

We should be glad that Gillette is still here providing manufacturing jobs and doing so while being close to downtown. They should really sell off their parking lots, though, and just have whatever...

Re: Logan Airport Capital Projects

A lot of complaints about enticing families to take transit to the airport. My question is: who cares?! As long as a significant portion of travelers (non-families) take transit to the airport, then...

Re: Kenmore Square North

In fact, it shouldn't be the Citgo sign. Do a facadectomy at this location, allow a taller building (since we won't have to worry about blocking the sign, either) to recoup the costs, and replace the...

Cookie issue

I'm not the only one with a browser cookie issue on this board, right? It seems even worse than before my absence. Before, if I left a tab open with the board pulled up, it'd eventually mark...

Re: Quaker Lane + Congress Square | Downtown

Wow, just catching up and I really like this. I'm very thankful for the pictures that have been shared, too. Haven't been over that way in a while, so it is very helpful to see these photos.

Re: South Boston Infill and Small Projects

Are you referring to the 1st and last pictures? Because you quoted the entire post.

I don't think the 1st one looks too bad, especially on that blank section of wall. The last one, the entire face...

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

Is The Hub still office-heavy, or has it shifted a bit? The OP said 600k sq ft for office space, more square footage than for any other use, and which at just under 175 sq ft/job means 3,500 office...

Re: Where is....?

I think the issue was with how the Urban Ring was only being seriously pursued by the state as BRT, and previous RRnet leadership was very anti-bus. Things have eased up quite a bit, but explicit bus...

F-Line was banned from RRnet, FWIW. I don't have any idea what in particular led to such an outcome, but his last post there shows as February 3rd. He has popped up elsewhere, in transit blog comment...

Ha! Shared your image to New Urbanist Memes for Transit-Oriented Teens. I found the broad time frame very amusing.

Re: North-South Rail Link

I'm all for an F Line, too. I think it would be hard to pull off both at the same exact time, though. Which is probably what would be necessary to avoid appearing as a loss of transit.

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

This actually would make me even angrier -- to think that there's people with time on their hands intentionally shitting on the city and the general public.

I disagree that Providence, Worcester, Fitchburg, Lowell, Lawrence, Haverhill, and perhaps Nashua, Manchester, and Portsmouth should get "low density of service," but anyway....

Re: The Merano (Parcels 1B & 1C) | Bulfinch Triangle | West End

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

Yes, but what about THE CHILDREN.

I'm guessing the complainers are from Comm Ave and Marlborough St just to the north. It makes sense, and is expected, even if they're unjustified.

Re: North-South Rail Link

For one, that's absurd that there's no benefit to Boston residents. And two, that is absurd to say that only Boston should get funding for transportation. Red-Blue is important, but it isn't going to...

Re: North-South Rail Link

There's plenty of platforms at Penn, I wouldn't think the two are related all that much. Another major issue with the Hudson tunnel is that maintenance, especially the heavy stuff, can rarely be done...

Re: North-South Rail Link

That's a lot of lines for 2 tracks. Keep in mind that a patrol, track work, or any sort of break-down/incident means you're immediately down to a single track operation. A major failure of the Hudson...

Re: East Boston Developments

I know you are, and I was actually being incredibly specific in who I'm squaring the blame on.

EDIT: that doesn't sound right. Sounds like I'm targeting you, which I am *not.*
