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

    This end of Causeway has some work to do (hopefully with facadectomies on some of the right side of that pic).

    BLVD | 320 Revere Beach Boulevard | Revere

    It's pretty shocking how much better the stuff going up on the freaking East Boston waterfront is compared to the longest public beach on the East Coast. Revere is like George Costanza with the sweatpants:

    Century-old retail and restaurants in Boston

    Accoustics aren't the reason (although if you see the video below, violinist Joshua Bell and the acclaimed music afficionado Matt Lauer report they are superb. How about URBAN HISTORY. Rachmaninoff, Paderewski and others worked in this hall. It is a singular architectural space that has no...

    Century-old retail and restaurants in Boston

    This may be one of the only instances where if any owner of that property aims to destroy the Hall, I will personally lie in front of the demo equipment.

    Century-old retail and restaurants in Boston

    Such a tragic loss of a very unique and wonderful concert hall. A buried treasure.

    Century-old retail and restaurants in Boston

    WAIT,WUT?????? Steinert's is leaving Piano Row?????? What is happening to Steinert Hall????? In the past few years, I seached the internet and have heard zilch about any restoration/renovation - - this was even after Today Show ran a long story on it. What a hidden treasure Steinert Hall is...

    MBTA Bus & BRT

    I really love that. Cities should be magical. More! The refinished mural at Park Street station is another great example of how someone at the T "gets it". Well done!!!!! Boston already has these treasure chest components - - use 'em and display 'em!

    Logan Airport Flights and Airlines Discussion

    I'm not sure those expectations from this past summer included a 95% efficacy vaccination being made available before the end of 2020. If I recall last summer, the hope was for a 50-75% efficacy vaccine by Q2 2021. The past week's news from Pfizer-BioNtech, Moderna and AstaZeneca have been...

    Connected/Automated vehicles and infrastructure in Boston

    I hear ya, George. And it may not happen by 2035 in BOSTON (although, I do think Boston is RAPIDLY changing - - maybe more so culturally/business-wise than any other city in US). But, as I mentioned earlier, I believe it WILL happen by 2035 in places like Singapore/Tokyo/Portland, Oregon, etc...

    Connected/Automated vehicles and infrastructure in Boston

    +1. This. I don't see individual ownership of these vehicles at all. One's cellphone will be used to order up the ride to pick you up and you then dial in the destination. It will be a subscription app (who knows if there will even be cellphones by 2035, anyhow? Probably something else)...

    Connected/Automated vehicles and infrastructure in Boston

    There is no "car culture" in the central core of major cities. Once again, I am talking about something that would be introduced over time through many concentric stages and would eventually end up being in place for no more than 5% of America's land mass.

    Connected/Automated vehicles and infrastructure in Boston

    Sigh. Once again, the manually driven car as we know it is not going to go away in 95% of America.. I'm talking about inner core of cities. (where every inch of space/real estate is precious). Don't fret, people in Weston will still be able to drive their reinforced tanks.

    Connected/Automated vehicles and infrastructure in Boston

    Concentrically introduced from inner core in stages. It won't be a switch flip. Manually driven cars would be prohibited. There would be no mix. Delivery trucks, etc. would be allowed only during off-peak times such as Midnight to 7am, or such. And we are not talking about this stretching...

    Joe and Emily Reatil started a nice family sign business in 1957........ But their business suffered from the price undercutting of their competitors Bob and Jane Holesail.

    Winthrop Center | 115 Winthrop Square | Financial District

    +1....and DEMOGRAPHICS. The age 65+ group is living longer - - - and the well-off in that group are really living longer and more active. They want to live near medical centers/culture/restaurants. They don't want yardwork and car repairs. Urban centers will boom for the rest of this century.
