    Boston Nightlife

    NYC is way easier to find something open, at least in manhattan. New Orleans has quite a bit of things open, not just places for alcohol. Las Vegas is 24 hours, even if it's for drunk people mostly. The entirety of Taiwan was ideal for being 24 hours excluding drinking establishments. but most...

    Boston Nightlife

    What's the dining options like in there? I'm interested in the being able to grab something 24 hours a day if I stay there but that doesn't seem so great if the options are underwhelming or extremely overpriced. Once the food court shows up I'm sure it won't be 24 hours, like most of Boston...

    Revere Infill and Small Developments

    I sometimes wonder why we don't see more people with the financial ability invest in a project to fill voids like this that is intended to reach break-even rather than turn a profit. Boston has hometown billionaires who care about their community, I'm sure some of these people can see the void...

    Encore Boston Harbor Casino | 1 Broadway | Everett

    and yet, it's unprofitable and the plant is being subsidized at the moment because of grid reliability issues. Which is the real point- it is now cheaper to get that energy from another source because this plant is not competitive. It's just that the replacement capacity doesn't exist yet. I...

    meanwhile, the building be like "I don't care if you think I'm sexy, I'm here to get business done."

    MXD | 145 Broadway/250 Binney | Kendall Square | Cambridge

    It's pretty much the first time I've seen orange being used tastefully- it's usually a half assed attempt to blend in with brick and terra cotta.

    L Street Station Redevelopment (née Old Edison Plant)| 776 Summer Street | South Boston

    You know, I don't know how wise it is for a developer to build more commercial in Boston right now, especially to appease NIMBYs. There's demand for it now but there's an imbalance between commercial and residential and an expected downturn will likely hit commercial space much harder. There's...

    Assembly Row Development | Assembly Square | Somerville

    Probably because of the water table. Having to constantly pump out water to prevent people's cars from being submerged in water seems less than ideal.

    This is why you never stand underneath a load... What's with the crane/rigging accidents???

    What exactly is the inherent design flaw with these that make them prone to this? Is it something that can't be modified adequately to mitigate the risk?

    archBOSTON Update: A New Dawn

    I can't access this place from work anymore, it loads as a blank page with just the archboston banner. Something is not jiving with the security settings and I think it's the ads. Oh well. But can someone check to make sure they aren't doing something really invasive? My work computer does that...

    New Red and Orange Line Cars

    You'd rather they wrote in complete sentences? I.7.8 (bar; left of the door); 8162: We two dear men, friends forever, were here. If you want to know our names, they are Gaius and Aulus. I.10.4 (exterior of the House of Menander); 8304: Satura was here on September 3rd V.3.9 (House of Cosmus...

    New Red and Orange Line Cars

    People have been scrawling messages on objects since ancient times. Honestly, if you look up what they found in Pompeii modern graffiti is usually pretty polite in comparison : Also "graffiti" found written in old norse...

    Echelon Seaport | 133-135 Seaport Blvd | Seaport

    Odurandina's idea of what the wealthy do with their money is very much a poor man's idea of what the wealthy do with their money. I'm also pretty sure if he has money he spends it all on blow and then comes on here, explaining his sometimes bizarre rants and height fetishism.

    Encore Boston Harbor Casino | 1 Broadway | Everett

    This. It represents a lot of things that make my skin crawl. It also wastes water in dry states, and is a complete waste of land in a place like this.

    Is there a non-profit out there that simply pays for the fares of those who struggle to make ends meet? You know, help people out and help the mbta patch it's budget holes at the same time?

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

    I wasn't actually dissing the rooms. It actually has some appeal to me, I'm just saying they're keeping prices down by using space efficiently.

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

    I think you need to do some research on what the citizenM brand is and how big the rooms are. The prices are on the high end for rooms the size of walk-in closets.
