Sometimes moving waters run deep - like underneath the Arborway in Forest Hills

New monument to Stony Brook, creek that runs under the Arborway at Forest Hills

One of the finishing touches for the new Arborway roads at Forest Hills is this monument to Stony Brook, a Charles River tributary that now flows almost entirely underground from Hyde Park to the Charles, as Arborway chronicler Clay Harper shows us.

One of the links in Adam's wonderful history of the Stony (see "Earlier" story linked above) takes you to some astounding photos of what it looks like underground:

Super interesting and quite beautiful. Thanks for sharing.

Meanwhile up above, those of us who have to traverse MassDOT’s unsafe, ADA uncompliant sidewalks along the Washington St Forest Hills business district wonder why MassDot continues to ignore pedestrian safety.

This is what Universal Hub is all about. The Stony Brook post may be Adam’s Magnum Opus. That was one of the best, although there have been others.

I would like to hear u-hub-fan’s take on all this.
