    Design a Better Franklin Park

    I don't know where I would find the numbers for that nor do I really care enough to dig into it, but I wouldn't be surprised if Boston's courses turn a decent profit - a lot of smaller cities manage to make _some_ money on their municipal courses. They obviously get a budget allocation each...

    Design a Better Franklin Park

    Winds would probably be too strong. No way $100 is covering the ferry out to the island plus the round and then a drink voucher. Granite Links which is a decent but mediocre course (well the front 9 is a beautiful, but the back 9 is a mess) is getting $125 for rounds. Construction costs for an...

    Worcester Ballpark & Redev

    It will be fine. The Red Sox still need a AAA team. Independent league's like the former CanAm are probably toast though.

    COVID-19 in Boston

    There will be many more. I really expect half or more restaurants and bars to fold within the next 6 to 12 months. The outdoor seating solution won't work in the winter months. Office worker after work revenue won't return.

    Design a Better Franklin Park

    Yea, but you could say the same about all those other things... only a few people play baseball/softball, or tennis, or skate. Yet you don't argue against them because they're spread out but the land area combined is probably similar. I don't think as few people play golf as you imagine.

    Design a Better Franklin Park

    Do you also feel that way about city owned baseball diamonds, basketball courts, tennis courts, and soccer fields? What about skate parks? Seriously, I don't get the hate about golf... it's a great game that pretty much _any_ age group can play which is something that cannot be said for all the...

    Design a Better Franklin Park

    This is just false and uninformed. I believe both Boston courses are $50 for 18 and a typical round takes about 4 hours. That's $12.50/hr for outdoors entertainment which is not exactly anywhere near unaffordable for most people people in Boston and surroundings. The big cost in golf is the...

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

    I'm sure both have excellent legal teams and this is a stupid pissing match.

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

    This doesn't mean much considering how shitty most of America's cities are.

    How does Boston's urbanism compare?

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

    That would actually require the BPDA and BCDC to have some vision.

    Wow what an incredibly uninviting entrance for Zuma.

    Northern Avenue Bridge Fort Point Channel

    It's a really bad design. The pedestrian part is below the elevated road part... that's going to be fucking awful in the winter with slush splash.

    The St Regis Residences (former Whiskey Priest site) | 150 Seaport Blvd | Seaport

    You know who that matters to? People that don't live in the building, and even then a small minority at that. Nobody cares about those people's opinions.

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

    There's a lot of advertising space on the backside of The Garden that I'm surprised Delaware North hasn't taken advantage of yet...

    Proposed But Never Built

    Wasn't there a small tower with the same style in Chicago or NYC recently demolished (last 2-3 years)? Same architect?
