    I did not expect to follow the link to that account and find a motherlode of racing photos, but I'm not going to complain one bit! On the local side, I didn't know "Charles River Park" was a thing until now. Stanley BrotherTwins-at-CharlesRiverPark Cambridge MA by clamshack, on Flickr

    That was a fun link to follow. I need to know more about this situation. Loose Slides-301 by Massachusetts Dept. of Environmental Protection, on Flickr

    Coronavirus and its Impacts on Urbanism

    I would hope this would be the case, but I suspect the reality is most bosses still won't be able to come to terms with measuring their employee's output and productivity rather than just counting hours. I guess if any situation is going to change managers' minds, though, this would be it.

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

    I wonder if they should have gone with a slightly brighter red than the official corporate color to make it stand out more. The Verizon sponsored IndyCar uses a fluorescent red that is almost orange when you see it in person but comes out red in photos and on TV. It's an old trick carried over...

    Getty Images finds

    In the interest of avoiding the more anxiety-inducing parts of the internet during this period, I've gone down a bit of a Getty Images rabbit hole over the past couple of days. Just a few photos I've found that I thought were interesting, would like to see more if you guys can find any. View...

    St. Gabriel Monastery | Washington St | Brighton

    It just hit me where this is. I was an alternate juror on a trial over a decade ago for one of two kids who robbed and murdered a cab driver right in front of the old church and then fled down to the projects below. A horrible story, and a difficult 2 weeks to listen to. We did take a field trip...

    Let's Talk About Gentrification...

    Anecdotally, I'm 34, and as young kid my mother used to take my sister and I to Jordan Marsh and Downtown Crossing on the 11 bus fairly regularly. I remember seeing those places pass by on Washington St. as an elementary schooler (and younger) and not knowing what they were exactly, except that...

    Thank you WAAF

    It's odd that there's no true rock stations left in metro Boston that I can think of. It used to be a sliding scale where WFNX was alternative, WAAF was closer to metal, and WBCN was a middle ground between the two. Of course, much of what all of them played in the heyday is classic rock now...

    Four Seasons Tower @ CSC | 1 Dalton Street | Back Bay

    What time of day did you take those? My sister's daughter was baptized at St. Cecilia's around noon, you may have inadvertently captured the moment in an odd way.

    Boston Skyline Photos

    ^That may be the Seaport's best angle. Hard to believe 15 years ago you'd only see the World Trade Center and not much else.

    General MBTA Topics (Multi Modal, Budget, MassDOT)

    I rode one on the D line last week. Impressive inside, especially with the screens. There was a guy in a Chiefs jersey bouncing around taking photos of it, I'm surprised it was no one from here.

    Patriot Place | Foxboro

    I don't see why putting it down there is so stupid. The stadium routinely hosts loud events late at night, I'm sure not too many people would be thrilled about being right next to it. Besides, they already have a shuttle between the upper and lower shopping areas, won't be a big deal to expand...

    South Boston Infill and Small Developments

    You know, I grew up in Southie, we got pizza at McGoo's every so often, my mother has even painted it...twice, and I've never noticed the narrow end of it along Dorchester St., nor the ghosts of buildings past on the other side of it. Such a nice building for that corner.

    South Boston Infill and Small Developments

    There's so much unresolved tension in this photo because of the gap between the McGoo's and T-Mobile buildings.

    The Alcott (née Garden Garage Towers) | 35 Lomasney Way | West End

    That photo gives me the same vibe someone mentioned about the view of the Omni at the Seaport from South Station, the idea that the city continues on and doesn't just end at a specific point. This tower's going to help that feeling from this vantage point. If only something could be done with...

    MBTA Fare System (Charlie, AFC 2.0, Zone, Discounts)

    Yes. The T website doesn't list any ticket counters there, only machines. I'll admit I've never actually been in there to check, but you'd think they'd want that prominently on the website if that were the case.

    MBTA Fare System (Charlie, AFC 2.0, Zone, Discounts)

    So, another complaint session from me, but last week, on my vacation, I still had to make a trip into Boston because my federal gov't employee transit card doesn't cover the full cost of a Zone 8 pass, and the only way to pay for a pass with 2 credit cards is to actually go to Back Bay. South...

    South Boston Infill and Small Developments

    You still have a lot of older long-time homeowners who are aging out and will eventually either sell and move or, sadly, pass on and their kids will sell. I know this because my now-retired parents are in that group and they're certainly not alone in that. Right now the development is mainly...
