The MBTA reports "moderate" delays on the Riverside Line due to a trolley that breathed its last at Chestnut Hill.
Seems the module that detects mobile devices has gone bonkers today and is showing the mobile version to lots of desktop users. I think I've fixed that (if you're on a desktop and the site has tons of white space and just looks weird, then I haven't, in which case let me know), but the fix has changed the look of the mobile version (which should still be readable, it's mainly that the headline fonts are different and you may not see the ad you usually see at the top of pages, which may be good for you, not so good for me).
The Dorchester Reporter has the details.
The MBTA reports "minor" delays on the Riverside Line due to a terminated trolley outbound at Waban.
WBUR reports Mayor Walsh tomorrow will detail his proposal to love up Amazon, with four possible sites in mind, but, really, he wants the Bezosphere to set up shop at Suffolk Downs.
Veeconley reports the T is once again using both tracks at Forest Hills, which should shave a minute or two off commutes to there. Of course, that does nothing to solve delays caused by the Orange Line just being the Orange Line, but it's a start.
Aline Kaplan introduces us to the architecture and possibly haunted history of the Charlesgate, a hotel turned dorm turned rooming house turned dorm again turned condos at Beacon Street and Charlesgate on the edge of the Back Bay.
The glowing spirits of horses that died in a flood have been seen on the ground floor where a stable was supposedly located. The building’s original plans show no stable on the premises, although you can have night-mares without real horses.
Ron Newman trekked over to Allston tonight to see the controversial new mural at Cambridge and Linden streets, only to find it's already been replaced by a new gorilla mural.
Cow Hampshire officials think Amazon should set up shop in Londonderry ("Gateway to Manchester!") so they can be near Boston, even though Boston sucks. And there's absolutely nothing hypocritical about a governor who's called plans to extend commuter rail from the Evil City up to the Graniteheaded State "a boondoggle" saying he'd be willing to extend commuter rail from Boston to New Hampshire if that's what Amazon wants.
Kara recounts an incident with a stranger on the Red Line last October.
His hand brushes my shoulder and he leans in, “Hey.”
I don’t say anything. I turn my head. “Sorry. I’m a little drunk,” he says. I’m still frozen. That’s when he reaches down and slowly strokes my boot from ankle to knee.
The Massachusetts Division of Fisheries and Wildlife is out with some "tips for aggressive turkeys" (more specifically, how we can deal with them, not tips for turkeys looking to get ragier). Among them: Read more.
The Suffolk Journal reports the university is looking to increase the percentage of students it currently has room for in dorms from 25% or so and quotes honcho and former City Councilor and East Boston native John Nucci on how it might make sense to look outside of the incredibly expensive area around the school at places that are just a ten-minute subway ride away - in particular East Boston, South Boston and Charlestown.
