The Zoning Board of Appeal today rejected a proposal to stick a newfangled digital billboard atop a Lincoln Street business next to the Massachusetts Turnpike after hearing from elected officials and neighborhood groups that 60-foot-high structure would become a blight in an up-and-coming area, even if its LEDs would be designed to only beam into the eyes of drivers on the highway.

Common Allbright proposal in Allston

Architect's rendering shows roomies will have birds to look at.

Two developers have filed detailed plans with the BPDA for a five-story, 80-unit apartment building on Lincoln Street in Allston mostly aimed at people who don't mind living with roommates or who have no choice because they're suffocating under student-debt burdens, in rooms that in some cases could rent as low as $844 a month.

Vivant Vintage mural before defacement

Mural before it was defaced.

Just three months ago, artist Hiero Vega finished this mural on the side of his brother's Vivant Vintage clothing store on Lincoln Street in Allston. Sometime this week, somebody who has yet to master the art of writing, let alone a sense of shame, defaced it. People who admire the work are raising funds to pay for Vega's travel up from Florida and the cost of the new paint so he can repair the damage.

A mural showing Charles River rowers on a wall in Lincoln Street that recently went up has already been defaced by some jerk who's doing his part to "keep Allston shitty." Universal Hub users who think that not posting photos of such defacement is equivalent to lynchings can see the damage. Maybe some volunteers can do for this mural what the Mayor's Mural Crew recently did for a defaced mural in Roslindale.

Two men trying to sneak their drinks out of Savvor on Lincoln Street at closing time on Jan. 16 didn't count on an off-dury security person hanging out at the employee door they tried to use. When he told them to leave the drinks inside, one held him while the other stabbed him repeatedly, a BPD sergeant and the bouncer told the Boston Licensing Board at a hearing this morning.
