Maybe someone else knows about forums directly, but there are a number of sites/blogs that have a big focus on development and transportation:

  • SocketSite
  • Curbed SF (better content than Boston's, at least as of a few years ago)
  • Hoodline (more "UHub"-like than others)
  • Streetsblog SF (wish we had one here in Boston, tons of Bay Area transportation coverage)

and you should definitely pay attention to SPUR, an active urbanist non-profit.
Awesome, thank you very much! I appreciate the help and will def check out SPUR.

Boston Public Library collections (and the larger Digital Commonwealth Collections)
Tichnor Brothers Postcard Collection
Massachusetts Postcards

And, for that matter, the larger Digital Commonwealth Collections
Kudos to Mass for putting all its gov't works in the public domain, by the way, if you were ever hesitant to post a state-created doc here, don't sweat it: it is in the public domain.

Boston is finally getting a streetsblog! https://jobs.streetsblog.org/jobs/editor-streetsblogmass/ (h/t uhub)

They're hiring a journalist/blogger for Massachusetts transportation/urbanism coverage. I follow their SF/CA stuff – really solid, thorough work (it helps that there are more projects going on there which can be covered...)

Thank you to DowntownDave for recommending:
https://newtrains.today/

Which tracks the newly-arriving Green (Type 9), Orange (#14 014xx), and promises to do Red (#4 019xx) when they become available.
