Move in day in Boston is tomorrow

September 1Many of the streets of Boston are littered with unwanted furniture tonight. Most apartments in Boston have a September 1 start to their lease (a nod to how much of an impact the student population has here in Boston).  To those of you living in n’hoods heavily populated with student renters, be patient and make sure you don’t need to use the streets tomorrow.

This weekend marks the 97th Feast of Saint Anthony in Boston’s North End. Started in 1919 by Italian immigrants from the small town of Montefalcione in Avellino, Saint Anthony’s Feast has become the largest Italian Religious Festival in New England.

Although the festival officially starts this evening at 7PM most of the activities are on Saturday and Sunday, culminating with the ten hour procession through the North End starting at 12 Noon on Sunday, August 28th.

For more information and to see the schedule of events for this year’s feast visit their webpage, stanthonysfeast.com.

The city of Boston is asking residents to rate the city’s priorities as it looks to the future and plans for Boston 2030. After getting initial feedback earlier this spring from more than 10,000 residents, the city  is now asking residents to prioritize the themes. Ideas like developing more affordable housing, improving public transit (and infrastructure in general), creating more open space and encouraging entrepreneurial ventures are just some of the concepts shared.

Help Boston prioritize these concepts and share your thoughts.
