Police hunt teen who rode on top of Orange Line car yesterday

Transit Police say they are not amused by a kid's antics atop a hurtling Orange Line train yesterday morning. A spokesman says police are now on the lookout for him.

The kid, who goes by Jonathan Stay Wavey, posted the video showing him climbing atop the roof of an inbound Orange Line train somewhere in Jamaica Plain or Roxbury. It shows him avoiding a Darwin Award just before the train goes under a bridge and then doing a handstand on the roof before climbing back inside. The video, which he posted on a publicly accessible Facebook page, concludes with shots of some of his pals.

Renderings from the Boston Society of Architects Beacon Yards Urban Design Workshop

Last week, two teams organized by the Boston Society of Architects proposed that the $260M reconstruction of the Mass Pike in Allston should include a great new public place and civic amenity along the Charles River.

Monday is the deadline to send comments on this project to [email protected]

Attempted bank robbery in Davis Square doesn't end so well for suspects

Updated with State Police info.

Matt Marra walked out of his dentist's office in Davis Square around 10:45 a.m. and right into a scene out of The Town - except this time the good guys won: A squadron of cops in armor taking down two guys they seemed to have known would be coming out of the Rockland Trust branch:

There was unmarked white van that the team poured out of right outside the bank as soon as guys came out.

Go ask Alice, I think she'll know

Roving UHub photographer Christopher Wagner reports on his encounter with the Allston white rabbit:

A couple days ago I was walking to my car and spotted him again. When I crouched down to try and get a picture, he hopped right out from under the white Subaru in the picture and stopped right in front of me. I’m thinking it has to be either an escaped or released pet ‘cause he’s awful comfortable around people. Also the whole albino thing. There was another time in front of my house when he was casually munching on some plants growing between the sidewalk cracks about 10 feet from where I was standing. Not sure what’s going to happen once winter comes, I think the times they will be much sadder.

Anyway I love the fact that there is a white rabbit in Allston.
