Firefighters putting out burning trash, trees and a wreath in the Back Bay

It was one of numerous outdoor fires set by somebody roaming Back Bay alleys last night before a two-alarm fire erupted on Beacon Street at Exeter Street around 10:15 p.m. - possibly the result of one of the arsonist's outdoor fires.

Judy Pagliuca before the Back Bay Architecural Commission

Judy Pagliuca makes a point to commission members.

Judy and Steve Pagliuca hit .500 before the Back Bay Architectural Commission Wednesday night: The board gave them permission to add an addition that would house a two-car garage and a deck in the rear of their house at 362 Marlborough St., but rejected a similar request for a smaller house they also own at 352 Marlborough.

The City Hall hearings on the two proposals turned into a contentious debate on the future of a historic neighborhood where even exterior changes visible only from its numerous service alleys - and the removal of trees - require commission approval. Read more.

Mike the Mad Biologist explains it was an attempt to cut into the business of the streetwalkers who used to ply their wares at the corner of Marlborough and Arlington in the 1970s:

People would hop off Storrow Drive and drive around the block, find, erm, a 'friend', and drive off. Not exactly the kind of tourism the city was hoping for, so the traffic pattern was changed. Hard to believe today, since the penthouse of Zero Marlborough (the corner of Arlington and Marlborough) recently went for $8.8 million.

Unlike Vessel, some guy who lives on Marlborough Street between Mass. Ave. and Hereford Street goes way beyond the snow-removal call of duty, by ensuring a clear, ice-free path all the way to the street, Penny Cherubino reports:

... It was deeply appreciated this week when icy sidewalks made walking in the street safer than slip-sliding your way in front of buildings that did not keep up with de-icing. ...
