Surprised they went with artists over housing for this but that seems typical decision-making in town. The property has been vacant for five years; let's hope their plans to be up and running this year come to fruition.

Bay State Cruise Line has extended its season through Thanksgiving weekend. You can take a fast ferry to/from Boston to/from Provincetown on Friday evenings or Sunday afternoons. $59 one way / $88 round trip

Unfortunately, Thanksgiving weekend they are only doing the regular Friday & Sunday trips so you can't go down Wednesday night to enjoy the entire weekend.

This project is of particular interest since it takes advantage of the town's inclusionary zoning bylaw to get a density bonus and build 13 units where only 3 would normally be permitted by right...

Is this the site of the current police station, or the house on the corner of Brown Street?

This is on the corner of Shank Painter & Browne (Dr O'Malley's former office).

Here's a link to it in Google streetview from Sept 2019. Its parking lot is fenced off and the for sale signs are visible.
