My gif comment should not be interpreted as distaste for the CITGO sign. It has its charms. If someone wants to pay thousands of bucks a month to live with that glow in their penthouse that's their goddamned right as an American!

For many of us who grew up in Boston, the CITGO sign is a fun, if quirky, landmark. Details like this happily define Boston. What's going on next door - the destruction, the replacement - is a diminishment. I prefer quirky to mediocre.

Living in that building. You complain about vantage points and there are people on the streets who would kill to have the Citgo sign obstruct their view.

Priorities, my dude
uh. I was responding to the “homeless person giving their last tooth” bit.

so not the point, but rather the delivery.

I think I saw you there taking these today! Particularly the last shot.
I was the kid with minimal clothing who went running past through the covered walkway haha.

So disorienting approaching from Brookline Ave and seeing no buildings here. I keep thinking I'm 300 feet west at that BU parking lot
