They should join their neighbors in Beacon Hill and take a long walk off a short curb cut.

This is one of the few places in the entire state where it should be totally uncontroversial to build tall.

Sorry you guys are going to lose (part of) your view.

By extorting developers into building pet projects for the complainers. Menino turned it into an art form.

You can't have yours. Bless this little suburban apartment community.

They'll see nothing, hear nothing, but say plenty.

I especially enjoyed the histrionic comparisons in the IAG letters to mid-century Urban Renewal razings. Let's maintain perspective: this is a single (bland) concrete parking garage being torn down that will make room for needed housing stock.

the rest of them had their houses torn down long ago and moved elsewhere.

I love the sign that says "MORE AFFORDABLE HOUSING →NOW←". Okay, we'll make the new tower twice as large so that the developer can afford to sell the apartments at a lower price point. I'm sure these folks would love that.

I wonder how many people HONKed AGAINST THE BRA.

NIMBYs don't seem to understand basic economics. Did they ever think about as to WHY housing is so expensive in Boston? Here's a hint: it's not because we're building too much of it.

Can we get on their news letter or something so we can show up and protest the West End in general and how it should be just razed to the ground and the original street grid put back ?
