Cleaning up all the bum sex?


Looks like gravel. Probably turning it into an official parking lot, with the Whitney coming on line next year.


Sounds about right. I'll post what I saw today here:

You'd think Pieroni would earn enough from that to tear it down, or repair it.

City / DDA own the entire block except for Pieroni building. No brainer that the DDA is giving the Roxbury Group rent free staging & laydown space. The only question would be how much repair / restoration they will be required to do to the site post renovation.

Which makes the fact that squatters are running parking really annoying. The DDA / City should be reaping those revenues...

They're taking the fencing down that surrounded the Pieroni place.

I think Andy should write an Off-Broadway musical about that incident.

And then it's only a People Mover stop or two away from being on Broadway!
I used to be with it, but then they changed what 'it' was. Now, what I'm with isn't 'it,' and what's 'it' seems weird and scary.
