Mr. Pellino is 100% right.
You'd be surprised. Apparently people's answer for the heat wave to go to the Cape. The Cape badly needs the business so having indoor restaurants will help big time... but gotta wonder about whether cases will start spiking there.Bless all these people eager to eat indoors... count me out.
Went to Newburyport this weekend- HIGHLY recommend for some outdoor social-distance-but-still-social-experiences. The main drag (State) is blocked off to cars and lots of outdoor eating and live music, plus the boardwalk parks. Sun goes behind the roofline at 530, so it's perfect shady eating. We did overhear people walk up asking for "AC seating"...Bless all these people eager to eat indoors... count me out.
kingofSheeba -- We've been sold a "false bill of goods about how the COVID-19 disease is spreadI didn’t even consider that. We’re seeing what is happening to venues all across the country. Great Scott might be saved but several other venues have closed for completely different reasons prior to the pandemic. Shame I know.
I listen to Dr. Fauci and the CDC but go on.kingofSheeba -- We've been sold a "false bill of goods about how the COVID-19 disease is spread
The reality is that it spreads through people breathing who are infected
The virus doesn't "survive" for long-enough to spread outside due to air-movement [dilution], temperature and humidity and most importantly UV light from the Sun. The best place for everyone today is on the beach
The solution for all the venues indoors -- make your indoor environment as close to a summer day at the beach -- lots of ventilation, large volume of air and bathe the air in UV
Rover -- you've got a part of itCan you define quality of life as being better? I get the cheaper part but again if cheaper was the end all be all we'd all be living in Arkansas right now.
I'll counter with two points: 1) from 2005-2017 90% of high tech jobs were created in 5 cities - Seattle, SF, San Jose, SD and Boston.
2) Also read another interesting article about housing prices in Boston, where the point was that biotech firms committing hundreds of millions of dollars to develop lucrative drug treatments aren't looking to nickel and dime their employees on comp - they need to best people not the people who will work cheapest.
I'm trying to square the trend you write about as it relates to Boston development with the city's population and job growth over the same period of time.
That will not change although if Tesla decides to move to Texas you might add Austin to the mix --indeed its likely to increase in the coming decade as other techs besides IT and Bio start to bloom-- such as robotics [just starting] and nano materials [not even really at the starting line] and guess what MIT is in the core of bothI'll counter with two points: 1) from 2005-2017 90% of high tech jobs were created in 5 cities - Seattle, SF, San Jose, SD and Boston.
