Mayor Marty Walsh video: City Hall sanctuary

I’m unsure how I missed this humorous video about a subject that isn’t very funny at all – immigration reform. The Mayor of Boston, Marty Walsh, released this excellent video back in January after Trump was sworn into office. I think it is the perfect response and support the message 100%.

For those of you who have only heard a Boston accent in an Affleck film, here is proof that people really do talk like that.

The Real Housewives of South Boston – St. Paddy’s Day

Although this video is now a few years old and the “new” Southie no longer resembles the stereotypes played perfectly by this cast of locals, it still gives me a good laugh. For those Bostonians who may have moved away and might watch this I’m sure it will give you a good laugh too. Have a great St. Patrick’s Day.

Pornhub asks Boston, “Wanna get plowed?”

In a stroke of creative marketing genius, Pornhub, an adult entertainment website, is making news after they pledged to assist anyone who “wants to get plowed,” here in Boston in response to today’s winter blizzard.

Pornhub has a small a fleet of branded trucks that are driving around helping to clear Boston’s streets and parking lots for free. Requests for a plowing are being accepted via email at phubplows@gmail.com.

Note:They are not offering to plow driveways.

Mass DOT’s Infra-Space program: South End

 

Infra-Space Program Boston, South End

Via: landing-studio.com

Lot 5 is space under the I-93 Expressway near the Ink Block that you’ve probably never paid much attention to before, but the city is making excellent use of this space converting it into (much needed) parking facility. This parking lot will link to two other 24-hour parking facilities that combined has 432 parking spaces.

These monitored parking facilities are helping link South Boston and the South End. However, what you may not realize is they are part of a bigger plan that Mass DOT refers to as The Infra-Space program, which was conceived to help reclaim previously unused space under the I-93 interstate highway and The Mass Pike to link it to Boston’s Harbor Walk; thereby connecting and extending walking, bike and running paths in the South End and Southie through Fort Point Channel and ultimately to the Seaport neighborhood.

Via: landing-studio.com

The Infra-Space program is a statewide initiative with Mass DOT to re-evaluate spaces under viaducts for better urban and ecological performance. Infra-Space 1 is the pilot project, spanning nearly a half-mile in length through the middle of downtown Boston.

The project includes a storm water management landscape that diverts the runoff from the viaduct, improved maintenance access, public recreation, and a series of scaffold structures that support operable lighting and art installations.
