Between the tense music and the (pretty much) lack of cars and people, I was expecting to see the lone zombie hold-out on the roof!

Never wondered... I don't get it... this creepy guy is spying on people stuck in their apartments due to the pandemic? I hope the drone operator is 5 miles from Logan! Respect people's privacy please. Your peeping tom hobby is adding to the distress people are suffering.

He’s creeping on some naked social distancers in those windows.

There’s also the one in egelston. There’s actually an old episode of cops where the police are up there doing surveillance

But isn't that on the Roxbury side of Egleston?

Man, I hate Boston neighborhood lines sometimes.

This got built due to some political shenanigans. Some powerful person's son got the go ahead thanks to being a powerful person's son. You really see how out of place this is from Lars Anderson. Does anyone know the background? Does the legend far outstrip reality?

BRA down the Eben Jordan Mansion to build that monstrosity.

Put one or two others by Forest Hills, one each by Jackson Sq. and Roxbury Crossing and that would be a plus for the housing market. The biggest problem with this is that it is only near the 39 bus.

One in Brookline Village would be great, but of course Brookline decided to build a huge medical office building instead as they'd rather get taxes than build schools.
