    Holocaust Museum Boston | 125 Tremont Street | Downtown

    The architecture of this building, in that particular context, is so hideously out of place - - it's an insult. WHO thought this design on that spot was a good idea????? Just look at how it does not dialogue with either neighbor on either side - - not to mention Park Street Church across from...

    The New Retail Thread

    Yup, you're right, mea culpa. I misread that it was the Licensing Board (nothing to do with Councilor Flynn) that unanimously approved the license the next day. Flynn didn't suddenly enter the 21st century after all..

    The New Retail Thread

    "....... "City Councilor Ed Flynn, who represents downtown, had opposed the half-hour increase in hours, saying 3 a.m. closing times are just too late for New England's largest city" If a business such as this wishes to stay open until 3 am, how is this a bad thing?"

    South Station Tower | South Station Air Rights | Downtown

    It'll be resolved. It'll be messy in the very short-term, but it'll be resolved. The bigger, longer-term issues are 1) interest rates 2) how the city pivots away from the city offering free Dunkin Donuts Days to office workers to the city incentivizing and lowering hurdles to residential...
