    On The Dot | 505 Dorchester Avenue | South Boston

    Every person I have spoken to from Dorchester or South Boston passionately hates the name and is not exactly sure why. Kind of like Whoop

    Hull infill and small developments

    Yes, but they just copied the form of what was already there
  3. Scott

    45 Worthington Street | 6 (née 35) stories, 141 (née 385) units | Mission Hill

    Nobody actually believed that was going to get built

    General Boston Discussion

    So the question that interests me is why is there persistent crime and poverty among such wealth?

    Turn it around: Why is the crime rate in Boston and Massachusetts and New England so low?

    Boston Harbor Flood Protection Projects

    Okay, but when I go on the Harbor Walk I reasonably expect to see the harbor, otherwise it should be called a building walk

    Boston Harbor Flood Protection Projects

    Also this is the extension of the Harborwalk that most Dot residents advocated for as opposed to the current extension being built now that runs behind buildings

    This is the golden age of apartment renting compared to the 1980's

    Roxbury Infill and Small Developments

    Part of the reason for the plaza is the Silver Line stop

    Fenway Corners (Red Sox) | 1 Jersey Street | Fenway

    I am bummed I didn't buy a few buildings for a song and dance back when they were being torched for the insurance money

    Hyde Park Infill and Small Developments

    The lot is currently on a slight elevation and is apparently going to be leveled. I wish that they would build it on that elevation and keep and restore the stone wall and maybe a mature tree or two if possible. It would make for a better streetscape and be a better neighbor.

    Boston in the Movies / TV / Netflix

    This 1970s Neo Noir is the Best Boston Movie: The Friends of Eddie Coyle - YouTube I always loved this film

    Harriet Tubman House | 566 Columbus Avenue | South End

    I think 691 Mass Ave is great too. These three well done contemporary projects have helped fix a historic streetwall that was conspiculously gap-toothed.

    Massachusetts Statewide Bus Network

    I think this might be a really good idea. Seeing how well it works in a nearby state is intriguing, but how can we quantify if it is a better way? That would be the first step in convincing people to take this seriously

    Why isn't the Tobin bridge lit up at night?

    Not to be a Debby Downer but there is also the possibility of Kenny Rogers chickening all of Chelsea

    Why isn't the Tobin bridge lit up at night?

    To enter Boston proper you must cross a bridge over the Neponset, Charles or Mother Brook and they are not all lit up because they are not important enough and the cost isn't justified. If we suggest the Tobin be lit then legitimate questions will be asked about its true cost and purpose.

    Why isn't the Tobin bridge lit up at night?

    I don't think it should pass the environmental sniff test. It has no real practical purpose beyond esthetic
