    Martin Luther King Jr. Memorial | Boston Common | Downtown

    Well, if Kim Kardashian likes it then my mind is changed 🤣🤣🤣

    Martin Luther King Jr. Memorial | Boston Common | Downtown

    No, but it should look good in pictures. I mean, you can see a picture of the mona lisa and have a pretty good idea of what you'll see if you actually went to see it in person. Why/how is this any different?

    Martin Luther King Jr. Memorial | Boston Common | Downtown

    I'm well aware that the sculpture was privately funded, but the city had to approve it.

    Martin Luther King Jr. Memorial | Boston Common | Downtown

    That's what a lot of people have said to me, and it's a fair argument. But for those of us who can't get to Boston, we have no choice but to look on line. And what we see in pictures does not meet our expectations and standards.

    Martin Luther King Jr. Memorial | Boston Common | Downtown

    I don't think it has to be a slow news week to cover this story. I think it can be somewhat objectively argued that MLK was the last American (and one of the last world) heroes ever. What I mean by that is our country and our planet have become so cynical that whenever a great man or woman...

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

    To be honest, I never liked the TD Garden from the time they opened it to a few years ago. I thought the yellow seats looked cheap and tacky. I do like the new black seats - they give the arena a sleak, fresher look. I also felt that the yellow seat drew more attention when someone left their...

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

    In this day and age, it seems like a better idea to just keep refurbishing the old arena. Where else could they put one if they wanted a new one? It's already in the perfect location.

    Middle East Nightclub Redevelopment | 468-480 Mass Ave / 6 Brookline St. | Cambridge

    Fuck this. How could they do this? The city council or the mayor or someone must step in. This is a travesty.

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

    I really like this photo. It gives a unique perspective on the city that we rarely see.

    Hartford CT

    I'm 43 and I don't remember a time when Hartford was ever really appealing. The downtown is mostly dead and boring - If I had a choice between living in within the city of Springfield or Hartford, I'd take Springfield in a heartbeat. I'd rather live in New Haven, Bridgeport or Stamford before...

    Supertall "Flagpole of Freedom" in Maine

    I agree with every word you said. But it does look pretty cool, too.

    Seaport Neighborhood - Infill and Discussion

    Jeez. I haven't been to Boston since Dec 2019. I look forward to my next visit in July and I might not recognize the Seaport!

    City Hall Plaza Revamp | Government Center

    This better be finished by the time I get to Boston in July! :D

    Possible Boston soccer stadium | Discussion

    What authority does Bruno Oliveira have? I just googled him and I don't see that he's connected to the Everett government or a journalist.

    Possible Boston soccer stadium | Discussion

    If it's built, do you think it'll hasten the building of a bridge to the orange line over the Mystic River AND a Silver Line expansion? If not, what's the point?

    Memorial Drive Greenway Phase III

    My wife said almost exactly the same thing when comparing her native Malaysia to Boston. Still, I've been to Delhi three times and it's the craziest driving I've seen anywhere in the world.

    Portland Passenger Rail

    I'd love to see the train go all the way to Belfast. Maybe even Bangor

    Petty Arguments Cut From Serious Threads

    I hate all of you for causing me to spend 10 minutes zooming in on each person's face to try to figure out their race.

    Bulfinch Crossing | Congress Street Garage | West End

    I'll be in Boston in July. This had better be finished by then! :)

    How Tall Are Boston's Buildings and Should They Be Taller?

    I think we have to realize that there are limits to the demand for space for housing or businesses. Let's assume that some company has decided there is enough demand to build either a 120 story super tall or 10 twelve-story buildings clustered around a T station. I go with the latter any day...
