Re: Long Island Bridge

As I said, it's already home to Camp Harbor View and Hannah Farm. So it's not totally uninhabitable already.

Re: Long Island Bridge

I don't get it either. Long Island is already home to Camp Harbor View AND Hannah Farm. No need for a power struggle where there isn't one.

Re: Capitalism vs Not Capitalism

Maybe...

But perhaps you should take a look at what's going on in West Virginia, Kentucky, Oklahoma and Arizona with the walkouts.

I agree that Reagan was no friend of the unions and helped...

Re: 115 Winthrop Square | Financial District

100%

It's a step up from Millennium IMHO and the crown gives it character but it's still 691 feet. Enough to appease the FAA but not enough for the NIMBYs. And while I enjoy it's character, to say...

Long Island Bridge

Sorry Mods if there is a duplicate and I only put it here and not the local politics thread because it a) shows that Marty doesn't get it on Long Island and b) it shows how Long Island is another...

Re: Amazon HQ2 RFP

Where are the NIMBYs on this? Hello? Silence. So, sportsball stadiums, shadows and digital signage, bad. A company that's not only miserable to work for, but also ready to come in and force the...

Re: General MBTA Discussion Thread

What's your rationale? There's nothing historical about the Arlington Station sign. Unless the actual sign is listed on the National Registry of Historical Places, then tell these NIMBYs to take a...

Re: Wynn Everett Casino | Everett

Well if it's a lynch mob, then I guess that we would have to go back to Salem in the 1600's and ask all of those witches men burned. Circle of life. Doesn't feel so good to be on the other end of...

Real Estate Exam (and the downfall of standardized testing)

This has been a total fustercluck that I haven't experienced in my thirty-three trips around the sun.

Re: General MBTA Discussion Thread

The only plausible defense for the delay that I can see has to do with the fact that the planned neighborhood has yet to be built. And with a local DMU already in place, it seems silly to build a...

Re: West Cambridge (Alewife, Acorn Park, Cambridge Park, Fresh Pond)

You would be amazed at who qualifies as a "journalist" these days.


On a side note, Brownsberger should take a long, hard, look at Alewife. The traffic, the new office park(s), and the new...

Re: Fenway Area Redevelopment

Didn't know where to put this. But Sam Adams is now the "Official Beer" of Fenway Park. That means that the Bud sign in the RF Roof Deck comes down and a new Sam Adams neon sign goes in its place in...
