Hotel in Sacramento that's really the Midtown Hotel in Boston

Something familiar about this Sacramento scene.

Charles Dennison IV was watching an episode of "Mr. Mayor" that involves a trip to Sacramento when he noticed an oddly familiar "Sacramento" hotel.

Roughly similar view from Google that will help you place it. Wonder if the Sacramento hotel is also slated to be replaced?

Turkeys outside the Huntington Avenue YMCA

Saw these two "gym [flying] rats" at the entrance to the Huntington Y today. I think they were probably bummed that Covid-19 has closed the gym for now.

Truck blocking major intersection of Huntington Ave. and Massachusetts Ave. with sign that tells people they can find out what punishment by transportation means

In Boston, "punishment by transportation" really means having a green light at the intersection of Huntington Avenue and Mass. Ave., only you can't go, because the driver of a truck whose side promises an answer to the question of what "punishment by transportation" means went into the intersection even though he couldn't get through it and then got stuck, blocking traffic, as Phil Winley shows us.
