GM2059 shows us a near-Storrowing around noon at a Storrow Drive entrance. Guess there's no question this time whether or not there's a warning sign in place. The State Police cruiser on the left is blocking the road so the driver can back up, of course.

A concerned citizen complains about the lack of action outside the BPL in Copley Square:
Trio of would-be hip-hoppers have blocked off a large part of sidewalk in front of BPL and are not even dancing. Most boring show ever.
