It was early Sunday morning when I started my walk east along Broadway. As I progressed and it got towards noon places started to get busy.

Broadway has never looked so inviting.

I hope Boston keeps these parklets / sidewalk seating permanently. Pretty much everywhere they've popped up (even in the grungier parts of Allston), they've made the streetscape more lively, pleasant, and inviting.

I'm excited about the restaurant space available in Beelines last set. Andrew Square could really use a decent restaurant and a few wins overall. If the other corner gets shovels in the ground it will improve the feeling in the square alot

I am really excited about the redevelopment of Andrew Square in general, and this is a great start. Sadly, the restaurant industry will be the last to recover from this mess and places like Andrew and Union Square will suffer for it, among other new "places" evolving in the area.

It could sit vacant for 2-3 years, sure, but I'm hopeful by summer 2021 or fall 2021 with a vaccine in place something will be ready to rock and roll there.
I wish they could get their act together on at least the lowrise portions of Washington square to help density in the area

The 400 Dorchester Street retail space would be a fantastic spot for Cafe Polonia to relocate. It's too excellent/unique a restaurant in too small a space (literally only 5 tables), and in my head I've romanticized how great it might be to have the scents of Polish beers and cuisine gracing the Square. The move would only be 300' from its current spot.
