You can SMELL old Manhattan in that picture, you know, that odd stale pretzel/hero/sausage smell that is like nowhere else. Even that is fading!

Welcome mega-block.

I'll bet the boys in the 5th floor reading room of the Athenaeum loved the glow from that Chevy sign: https://www.flickr.com/photos/boston...n/photostream/

Re: Open Thread

Random question.

I seem to remember hearing about a plot of land out in western Mass (I forget how far west) that was bequeathed to the city of Boston by some old rich person, so now the city is responsible for some random patch of land outside the city. I think the city wanted to sell it or give it to the state, but the will disallowed it?

My google skills are failing me, so I can't find anything about it online. Does anyone knows what i'm talking about or did I dream the whole thing?

I think it's in Burlington MA. and located on the eastern border of the city. East of 128 and south of route 3. Maybe Mary Cummings Park or Wispering Hills Park.

Mary Cummings Park. Which for any aviation nerd (me), has a cool RC aircraft field that's worth checking out.
