    Boston Skyline Photos

    Commonwealth Pier Revitalization (née Seaport WTC)| 200 Seaport Boulevard | Seaport

    Yeah I was surprised by the total gut-job when I biked by here the other week. You sure do miss a lot during a COVID-Winter!

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

    I think of the buildings in the N. Station cluster, I like this one the best. Which I did not expect when this build cycle started cranking.

    General Infrastructure

    GPS (in some instances at least) haven't caught up with the renumbering. On 128 south in Waltham it was still using the old numbers.

    The Diesel family of cafes in Somerville are all good. Diesel in Davis and Bloc in Union Sq. Their bakery supplier Forge is in-between them near the intersection of Elm and Somerville Ave.
