    Worcester is building a lot in this sort of style.

    One Post Office Square Makeover and Expansion | Financial District

    Truly a case where the opposite of “sucks” is “blows”.

    Middlesex County Courthouse Redevelopment | 40 Thorndike St | East Cambridge

    Hate the “cow catchers” around the top. Spent many happy times in the courtrooms here. It always felt like the big time.

    Kenmore Square North | 533-541 Commonwealth Ave | Fenway

    Ha. Every generation thinks it is Columbus discovering “a new world”. Mine in its youth, yours… I agree that the pandemic regulatory changes regarding out door drinking and dining might bring a change in a more desirable Latin direction.

    Kenmore Square North | 533-541 Commonwealth Ave | Fenway

    I’m 65. Saw a much more exciting night life here in my day than you describe as current. I regret the collapse of such. But it’s not on us old fogeys as a class. Although I suppose when we were the client base, perhaps we were more numerous than you and thus better catered for? The...

    State Street HQ | One Congress | Bulfinch Crossing | West End

    Worcester Ballpark & Redev

    Looking forward to visiting it. Does look in the photos like there was a lot of value engineering compared to the Camden Yards style renderings. PS the Fitton Field baseball stadium at Holy Cross is a very coherent 3000 seat park

    Winthrop Center | 115 Winthrop Square | Financial District

    Probably a pretty good share of Sephardic Converso DNA too, so take that Fascists! Apropos of imperialism, Dewey Square was to be Boston’s monument to Empire, honoring as it does Commodore Dewey’s humiliation of the Spanish Empire at Manila. Sort of our Nelson and Trafalgar Square. South Station...

    Entertaining. Baltimore was a heavy hitter for a long time.

    Winthrop Center | 115 Winthrop Square | Financial District

    The Waldorf Cafeteria, Garcia y Vega Cigar Store and Eric Fuchs were more interesting predecessors on the One Financial site. You felt like you were in some old time big city, not a loading dock/traffic sewer topped with some Hartford style cheapskate building. But alas, the pooch truly was...
