    Honestly, it's the typeface that's killing me. If they had chopped the W off the original logo it would have looked (mostly) fine, the generic humanist throws off the proportions, not to mention it gives me the vibes of a generic Christian TV network logo. Maybe it's how the G and the H are...

    So, you have maybe the most recognized call sign in all of public television, an iconic logo that has has been seen on screens worldwide, and more goodwill than just about any organization possible. But marketing needs to justify their existence, therefore...

    Harvard SEC (Science & Engineering Complex) | Western Ave | Allston

    Gives me more of a pro wrestling steel cage feeling from the wide shot.

    General MBTA Topics (Multi Modal, Budget, MassDOT)

    They've been kicking butt down on South Huntington as well, it's all paved from Heath down to the bottom of the hill. They start the work on the intersection tonight, which is going to ruin my commute for a couple of days, but to be honest it's all badly needed.

    Stairs, Gates, Footpaths, and Odd Public Ways

    Kenney St. in JP terminates at the VA parking lot, but there's still a valid easement that requires pedestrian access to South Huntington, so there's a gate there, and although you have to cut through the lot, you can still walk through with no issues:

    The New Retail Thread

    Top Shelf Cookies opening this fall at 515 Gallivan Blvd. Really cool to see as the owner was a fellow commenter on Stanley Cup of Chowder back in the day. I got to try one of their Black and Golds back when I could still have gluten and they were excellent...

    Burlington and SSP are both Simon malls, wonder if they're getting some leeway from them.

    Nature around Boston (and the rest of Mass)

    Old Sturbridge Village this morning. This heron was chilling under a little wooden bridge on the pasture walk and scared the ever loving bejeezus out of us when it flew out. Luckily I was quick enough to catch it.

    "The Last Tenement" Discussion | 42 Lomasney Way | West End

    This feels like the exact sentiment that the Last Tenement should continue to stand as a caution against. NIMBYism may well be out of control, but this building represents the other extreme, development run amok with total disdain for those being displaced. It has inherent value as a reminder...

    The story on that is way better than I could have hoped. What an absolutely terrible idea for a development. I agree, a condo tower in downtown Providence would actually be an appealing proposition, but this thing in the middle of nothing, and miles away from even downtown Newport? Nope.

    Took the family down to do a Newport Rail Explorers tour this weekend, and stumbled on this random, giant condo tower in Portsmouth. Just sits there in the middle of nowhere with nothing else around. I guess it's part of some luxury club, but it's also just so random...

    So a dumbass blew through the gates at the Morrissey Blvd. Drawbridge yesterday and got stuck, screwing traffic up for a good long while: This comment on the relevant UHub post raises a good question - what's the taxpayer money involved with keeping the bridge operational to accommodate a few...
