    Ha - puff piece if ever I saw one. The empty sterility of the suburbs and enslavement to the automobile is only experiencing a 'revival' because there is no place for grown-ups to live in the city. Pl more »

    I agree wholeheartedly with everything outlined in this article but have cynically decided that this is a 'done deal', the matter was settled long ago in back rooms with handshakes and cigars all arou more »

    I think this is a brilliant idea, and a possible way of side-stepping Boston's chronic parochialism with regards to nightclubs, since the oft-cited claim of excessive noise disturbance has prevented a more »

    I think that the rental figure of $2400 for a decent, not luxury but livable, apartment in any part of Boston proper is actually quite low. You should expect to pay at least $4000 for a reasonably siz more »

    @JPshamrock - That drives me crazy too! LOL Easy enough to Google it though, the address for JM Curley is 21 Temple Place, near Downtown Crossing. Watch carefully though because you could easily strol more »

    Posted 04/05/2012 10:18:41 EDT

    I choose to ignore the 'ghetto' comments from people apparently unaware that Dorchester is rapidly changing, as is much of the rest of Boston. Folks forget that not too long ago, anything south of Was more »

    An earlier comment alluded to the issue of 'thug' types in Downtown Crossing. I don't pretend to understand the intent of that sort of comment, but I will say that the best way to deal with unsavory c more »

    +1 on that FullofBlusterJones!! I count 4 within a very short radius: Kickass, Cakeology, Crumbs, and Sweet. I hear rumors that Magnolia coming soon. I think we're saturated on cupcakes. In all seriou more »

    In amongst the usual hatespeech from illiterate suburban morons, there are one or two cogent comments here. I'm immediately siding with 'Watch09' that this development will be nothing but absurdly ove more »

  • Comment on: 'McDonald’

    Posted 03/10/2012 04:57:19 EST

    For what its worth, almost all of the fast food chains, including McDonalds, have eliminated pink slime from their meat. The single biggest purchaser of that nasty stuff is actually your local school more »

    I would say that it is the cowardly developers who are skittish, not the eager buyers. Aside from building mega condos for the ultra wealthy, or else subsidized housing for the other end of the spectr more »

    +1 on those previous positive comments! Even with all that being true, the neighborhood remains (for now) very affordable compared to the insane prices of Yuppie Heaven South End, and I haven't seen a more »

    We spent the day walking around that new neighborhood yesterday, and while it is a big improvement over the decrepit industrial wasteland that was there before, we decided it wasn't really our type of more »

    I'm not an Apple worshiping fanboy by any stretch, but I believe it is misleading to classify NeXT as a 'failed startup'. If you prefer dynamically generated web pages rather than static ones, you sho more »

    I think if you read the well-written review more closely, you will discover that the writer never claimed that tamarind was difficult to find in Mexico, merely that it was an unusual ingredient for a more »

    Can you imagine the Absolute Meltdown that would occur if the typical suburbanite wandered into a Chinese restaurant in Chinatown that did NOT serve mayo-drenched Sino-American classics? I've watched more »

    @gab2187 : I guess some people can't resist attacking someone else for any reason whatsoever. The anonymity of the internet just makes it so easy! Fortunately the internet also makes it easy to check more »

    Why is this news? Another Republichristian hate-mongering bigot imposing her Taliban-style religious views on the citizenry? Yawn. We get it already.

    Any resident of Massachusetts who hasn't driven out to this charming western area of the state should do so now, before the developers carry out their schemes. Those little towns are just beautiful, a more »

    I agree with the previous comment - if I can't pick it up easily and eat it with my hands without getting a load of toppings down my shirt it isn't a hot dog. Luxe Burger Bar in Providence does a grea more »

    Umm, skeeter Eugenics is not a 'liberal dream', it is a conservative one, embraced by right-wing extremists from Hitler to Mussolini to Milosevic to Bush. By definition the term liberal refers to peop more »

    @sladeboston - The reasons for the distinction is much more than just semantic. Federal Law in this country reserves over 1400 specific legal rights and protections for married couples which are denie more »

    Posted 11/13/2009 09:36:57 EST

    This review matches the impression that I got from the trailers that I've seen already. If nothing else, at least it might rekindle interest in the original brilliant series and the lovely but surreal more »

    In point of fact, IBM has 115,000 US-based employees and while it is true that some jobs of this GLOBAL company are located in India, some are also located in Russia, Japan, Australia, China, and nume more »

    I'm not a 'booster' of any kind, but I have to wonder why the highway exit #27a on Rt95 in Waltham has been under construction for over 12 years. Perhaps the same contractors that took 15 years to fin more »
