    🔷 Open Thread

    Just had the revelation (heh) that the Museum of Science, from some angles, looks like a church - There's probably some commentary about science and religion in there somewhere but that's for people smarter than I.

    Fenway HoJo's Redevelopment | 1271 Boylston Street | Fenway

    I don't know if there's a specific RV like that but I'm getting big GM Futureliner vibes from it.

    7INK (née Ollie) | 217 Albany St | South End

    The Trypophobia Building. I can see what they were trying to go for but there's just too much contrast between the panels.

    Boston in Art

    Well, there's the solution to the Harbor Towers - paint one mint green and the other light purple!

    Crazy Transit Pitches

    Split the line after Westborough and redirect it along the Pike to re-merge with the main line by 128. That's a far more direct route than the winding-through-the-suburbs of the Framingham segment, and it cuts out the massive time-sucks of the Framingham/Natick/East Natick loading and unloading...

    "Dirty Old Boston"

    I'd never seen that Sunoco station before, now I want every gas station to look like that.

    UMass Medical Center University Campus | Lake Ave | Worcester

    It's rare to have large VA Outpatient Clinics like that up here in the northeast - generally, they are smaller leased space more like a community health center (hence the VA acronym CBOC - Community Based Outpatient Clinic) because the main hospitals are close enough to most veterans that...

    WPI Smart World Research Center | Boynton Street | Worcester

    I graduated in 2007 and they've basically doubled the size of the campus since then. It's great for the school, but as undergrads we were all kind of miffed that the expansion was going to kill the "small school" vibe that we ended up loving. I'll give them a pass on them designing a college...

    Quincy Center Redevelopment

    I'm always gobsmacked when I see current photos of Hancock St. We used to go there constantly when I was a kid and still made visits even over the summer in college to go to Hobbytown. It's a complete transformation of that area and is very impressive.

    Crane Estate from the roof

    Took the Cupola Tour with the family at the Crane Estate over the weekend. Been there several times but this was a great new perspective. Always worth a visit. ...and, for good measure, an actual crane!

    Wow, never expected to see the gas tank and the Foley Apartments in a photo of a project in Chelsea. Amazing!

    Gillette Stadium

    Because the Revs are an afterthought. That's not something a new stadium can fix - soccer simply does not have the roots in the US that the other sports do, and the Revs simply do not have the roots in the region that the Big 4 teams do. It will be decades before that changes, new stadium or not.
