Alex Green can't say enough about the new non-dungeony insides:

A literary culture thrives on readers, and while our city has never lacked for those, it has gone long stretches with little in the way of public spaces in which they might feel inspired to gather. The Boston Public Library’s newly renovated Johnson building, which opened on July 9, so successfully embraces and celebrates the idea of being a literary public space that it has the potential to fill that absence for good.

Just noticed the weird lights atop the new high-rise at the Pru last night. I know the late Mayor Menino always championed unique designs like the "crown" n the nearby Huntington Avenue building, so is this part of his legacy, too? Either way, I think I kinda like it.

UPDATE: Chili Duck passed a re-inspection on July 11 and can re-open.

A Boston health inspector yesterday shut Chili Duck, 829 Boylston St., for a long list of violations, in particular, kitchen workers not washing their hands - in sinks that didn't have hot enough water - and not having a manager on duty, let alone one who can supervise workers to ensure they were washing their hands between tasks.

The restaurant can re-open after a re-inspection shows it's fixed all of the problems.
