Update: Turns out the photo the 311 kvetcher posted was from neither East Broadway nor today - it was, in fact, a photo from a 2015 WBUR story and shows I Street.

A disgusted citizen filed a 311 complaint about all the space savers in South Boston today - like this one on East Broadway.

Can we get BTD out to remove all of the space savers out?!? Absolutely ridiculous that there's numerous space savers out for a glorified rain storm

Update: Building owner apologizes, sends crew out to wash the ads away.

Way to make an impression with the neighbors: Several disgusted citizens filed 311 complaints today about the gauche way 28 Exeter at Newbury advertised it has flats to rent - by spraying stenciled ads on the sidewalk of the Commonwealth Avenue Mall. The building went up in 1979, so you'd think the owners would know how their ads would be received in the Back Bay.
