Oak Square space saver

Can't blame a citizen for trying, in this case a Brighton citizen who looked down today, saw a lack of snow and asked this lady to stop saving a space in front of her Hobart Street home:

She told me the spots were hers and anyone that parked there would regret it.

Meanwhile, across town, a roving UHub photographer captured the scene today on... Read more

Telegraph Street in South Boston

An irate citizen complains about space savers on Telegraph Street in South Boston:

WTF?! Space holders in VISITOR PARKING?! Come on! The old Mayor's office was do-nothing on this stuff. I hope Walsh has a backbone.

Separately, the city responds to a similar complaint on Westmoreland Street in Dorchester by saying workers picked up all the cones there.... Read more

Parking space saver in Roxbury

Most people just toss their space savers on the nearest snowbank when they park, but Jed Hresko discovered last night that one person on Townsend Street in Roxbury decided to keep his or her snow chair out of the elements.

Working on Bowdoin Street on Beacon Hill

Bowdoin Street on Beacon Hill remains shut tonight as workers try to repair the damage done by yesterday's water main break.

In addition to the burst main, workers also have to repair a road that buckled under the force of raging mini-torrent that rushed down to Cambridge Street.

Hannah diCicco took a photo of the repair work. Cherie L. King was on... Read more

Another water main burst this afternoon, this time under Bowdoin Street on Beacon Hill, buckling the roadway and sending a flood down the hill onto Cambridge Street, which had to be shut as well. At least this time, no bus or truck got eaten.

Brian D'Amico, who took the video, also posted photos of the watery mess.... Read more

Crash on 128 north in Newton

The Newton Fire Department reports the driver of a mini-van that rolled over on the way from 128 north at the exit to the turnpike this afternoon suffered only minor injuries and declined a trip to a local hospital.

Per the mayor's office. And you know what that means: 48 hours of space-saving frenzy (and then it all stops, right?).

Ed. note: Video NSFchairs at the end.

Unshoveled space

Rory Nolan doesn't have a car, so doesn't need a parking space. Shortly after 5 p.m., he reported he cleared three spaces in the street:

Seeing how long it takes some1 to take or mark it. Let's go.

Around 7:30, he reported:

Going on 3 hours and it's still open. Difference between Allston and Southie.

In fact, a few minutes later, he updated:... Read more

I Street parking saver in South Boston

A wary-eyed citizen reports from I Street in South Boston this afternoon:

This is absolutely ridiculous and unfair. This person left for work and left trash on the street to hold a spot. Across the street at 32 I Street another resident left for work and put a foot stool out in their spot (which we moved to park our car because up and
