OK, more non-housing news, but this one is big: Pepe’s Pizza of New Haven is reportedly planning to open a shop in Boston. Anyone who’s been to the original Pepe’s in New Haven knows it has first-class, old-school, delicious thin-crust pizza. And, yes, we’re talking Santarpio’s style and level of pies, arguably even better. Pepe’s [...]
Granted, we were more than a little skeptical last month when it was first reported that state officials were mulling a new “twin” Sagamore Bridge to relieve traffic congestion to and from Cape Cod. But the BBJ has a story (sub. req.) and it seems state officials are quite serious about the idea: The state [...]
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.

After decades of basically being a tourist trap shunned by local residents, the new managers of Faneuil Hall Marketplace have finally realized that maybe they should try a different approach. OK, an outdoor reading room, chess tables, outdoor performances and more artists might help a bit in making it a place where locals will want [...]
From everyone at Ford Realty, Merry Christmas and happy holidays.
There we were, all excited to see what brazen, crony, insider development deals the BRA might approve just days before Marty Walsh became mayor. But now the unusual BRA meeting set for next week has been called off. Bummer. From the ever-blunt Herald: An eleventh-hour BRA meeting that was squeezed in four days before Mayor-elect [...]
