Old State House
A concerned citizen complains about some boarded up windows at the Old State House:
This building is visited and photographed by 100s of tourists every month, we should fix asap, reflects badly on boston.
It was all smiles outside the Old State House today as the British consulate threw a little street party to celebrate the 60th anniversary of Queen Elizabeth's ascension to the throne. Grenadiers milled about but didn't try to retake the former seat of the provincial government, instead spending most of their time posing for photos and showing off their weapons to children who asked nicely. The queen herself made an appearance, although the flight across the pond seemed to have left her a bit stiff:
Alert New England reports somebody was stabbed in the throat by the Old State House entrance to the State Street T stop around 9 p.m. The T shut down the station to let police investigate the incident.
Christopher Baer tweeted not long after:
I saw a man holding a cloth to his throat getting into an ambulance outside State St. T station a few minutes ago.
Update: Suspect described as black male in 20s, in a black sweatshirt, dark jeans, black shoes and a black hat with a purple brim.
