The interior tour starts at 1:00.
The Jamaica Plain Gazette reports on a class project at Wentworth to scan in photos of both the exterior and interior of James Michael Curley's house at 350 Jamaicaway - which is owned by the city but which is almost never opened to the public.
A white elephant made of brick? Only in Boston.
That house is BEAUTIFUL inside. Who knew?
Anyone paying attention as Curley looted the city with toxic politics, created an exodus of intellectual and financial capital at the worst possible time (explosion of the streetcar suburbs), and turned the shining Athens of America into a forgotten backwater.
The decline of Boston started long before Curley was elected to his first office. Much of Boston's Streetcar Suburbs had already filled in before he ran for Mayor, Boston had long lost its intellectual cache by the end of the 19th Century, and in their wisdom, the Boston Brahmins had already invested their capital in Western railroads, mines, etc.
Other than that - yeah, you're right.
how it scans through the walls like that
Someone should use that data for a horror-themed FPS/adventure game.
Does the Curley mansion have a live-in caretaker?
I wonder what the "legal restrictions" on the property's use are?...
The Curley house is amazing, yet everyone knows that Shemp's humor is sublime.
