Romsey Street with fake snow

Seems Marky Mark is back in his old hood, doing a movie in which he really stretches his dramatic wings and plays a gritty gun-toting tough guy with a Boston accent. One of the scenes in the Netflix-sponsored version of a "Spenser: For Hire" story (of course) called for snow. Kaw3589 reports the recreation of winter on Jones Hill this morning was "pretty damn spot on" - look at those space savers and the half-assed shoveling job for that half inch of snow.

Stanley Staco reports a man was stabbed outside 150 Hancock St. around 5:30 p.m. - not long after somebody was robbed of an iPhone on the street by crooks smart enough to insist he turn off the phone's tracking software first. The stabbing victim is 17 and lives in Hyde Park.
