Forest Hills awoke today to the sound of a helicopter inching its way up Hyde Park Avenue, and as one 311 reporter complained. "looking into resident back yards."
In fact, the helicopter is unconcerned with whatever people are storing in their backyards. It and its crew were hired by Amtrak to survey the poles that support the power lines for trains in the Northeast Corridor.
It's been slowly moving north from Rhode Island since September, resulting in a spate of complaints and queries as it entered Boston, starting in Readville on Oct. 23 and reaching the Blakemore Street Bridge in Roslindale on Tuesday and now Forest Hills.
