Lenny Rowe reports a convoy of seven Indian Trails buses was headed straight for a storrowing tonight. Fortunately for the passengers, however, the drivers of the two buses that actually close enough to Storrow to realize the doom that awaited them stopped in time and managed to back up on Berkeley. Unfortunately for all the other drivers in the area, that caused a backup.
Police shut the intersection of Berkeley Street and St. James Avenue around 1:50 .m. to let the bomb squad take a look at. Around 2:15 p.m., the bomb squad determined it was harmless.
Emily Cervone forwards a photo, taken by a co-worker, of the guard for Ted on Berkeley Street in the Back Bay this morning (can't be too careful with Johnny Depp maybe still running around all balding and everything).
Ed Coppinger notes the cop on the left is his brother, Mike (and we note that Ed is not the state rep - that's his cousin, Ed).
The caption for the original Leslie Jones photo from Jan. 29, 1937 reads:
Auto driven by Richard Kent turns over at Newbury and Berkeley.
The Boston Business Journal reports that one of our local power couples (he's a former BRA director, she's on the Kennedy Greenway Conservancy board) have sold a 206-room hostel at 40 Berkeley St in the South End to a developer for roughly $6 million more than they paid for it four years ago.
A roving UHub photographer came across this scene at Berkeley and Chandler in the South End, moments after the Sox game ended.
Restoration Hardware is betting it can entice you to buy patio sets by helping you enjoy some adult beverages as you lounge around on floor models at its impending store on Berkeley Street in the Back Bay.
The Boston Licensing Board yesterday granted Restoration Hardware permission to buy a beer-and-wine license for the store from the Channel Cafe on Summer Street. The chain hopes to open its extensively renovated store next month.
The BRA informs us of the official ceremony at the site of the $300-million complex at Berkeley Street and Columbus Avenue.
