Report: Boston is gentrifying faster than any other US city

This must be Gentrification Day at Boston Real Estate Blog. No sooner had we hit “publish” on the post below about Somerville’s gentrification moves, we noticed this front page story in the NYT about how a number of cities, including Boston, are trying to curb the effects of gentrification on long-time neighborhood residents. What really […]

Hey, let’s tear down most of downtown Boston for the Olympics

The Globe has a story (sub. req.) about a new commission study that says, yes, Boston, could theoretically handle the Summer Olympics in 2024 in terms of security and hotel rooms etc. But – well, er, cough, cough – it would take a “monumental task” to actually do it, the commission says. Monumental is… Continue reading […]

Boston’s impressive public parks system

Did you know that 15.9 percent of the land in Boston is for park land? That fact and other features makes Boston one of the top cities for parks in the United State. Another factoid that we didn’t know about (but clearly should have): The Boston Commons is the oldest public park in America… Continue reading

Spock comes home to visit his old West End

Legendary TV actor Leonard Nimoy (aka Star Trek’s “Spock”) recently came home to Boston to visit his old West End neighborhood, or what’s left of it, for a documentary he’s doing. From the Beacon Hill Times: Traveling with his son, Adam, Nimoy visited the West End Museum to shoot footage for a family film… Continue reading

To bury or not to bury

They’ve finally buried the marathon bomber. OK, he was an odious, murderous individual. One can’t blame people too much for not wanting his body buried in their town, where it might turn into some weird shrine for deranged terrorist souls. But still … We’re a civilized society. This really shouldn’t been so drawn out. Thank […]

How they helped

The BBJ has a big story (sub. req.) on how One Fund Boston, the main charity for the Boston Marathon attack victims, was put together so fast in the immediate hours after the terrorist bombings. It wasn’t the most important thing done in the 24 hours after the tragedy, but it… Continue reading

Mapping out last week’s bombings and manhunt

The Washington Post has a very good interactive map of last week’s dramatic events in Boston — all the whos, wheres and whens etc. The subject of Friday’s day-long manhunt, i.e. the second suspect, didn’t travel very far from the scene of the original Watertown shootout to his final hiding place… Continue reading

Unbelievable morning

The headlines say it all. Stay safe everyone. God bless. File under: Boston history, literally and figuratively… Continue reading

Got him! … Update – Never mind!

Thank you, FBI and BPD. Update — Now they say they don’t have him. … What a media/sources screw up. And, we suppose, blogger screw ups too for buying it. In the immortal words of Otter, “Hey, you f*#ked up …” Continue reading

‘The world is watching’

As terrible as yesterday’s bombings were, you still can’t help but feel proud of Boston and Bostonians today. The number of selfless, heroic acts of bravery and kindness yesterday simply astound. Above is MIT’s Green Building lit up in red, white and blue after yesterday’s bombings. File under: God… Continue reading
