Original Author: 
Nathan Green

IT IS obvious from Shirley Leung’s column (“This developer’s prospects may be looking up,” Page A1, April 18) that Leung, developer Don Chiofaro, and Mayor Marty Walsh are each campaigning for construction of a high-rise building between the Rose Kennedy Greenway and the Aquarium and waterfront in Boston. The location is the site of the existing Harbor Garage.

Another approach for flood-prone regions: learning to live with the sloshing

Original Author: 
Crystal Aiken

WHILE KEVIN Hartnett’s “The ‘future-proof’ city: a proposal” (Ideas, April 13) deserves applause for highlighting the search for climate-resilient solutions that is underway in many cities, the piece should have given more credence to Sofie Pelsmakers’s “whimsical” ideas for flood protection.

Three decades ago, a young union laborer named Marty Walsh worked for Don Chiofaro, helping to build the city’s biggest office complex, International Place.

BOSTON — Near the water's edge on Northern Avenue in the rapidly developing South Boston Waterfront neighborhood stands a squat red brick building fronted by a row of exclusive parking spaces.

There's a small pathway to the left of of the building that leads to Seaport Boulevard. A lush green lawn hemmed in by trees and shrubs extends to its right with a 4-foot statue of the Virgin Mary in the center.

Cheap parking disappears on the South Boston Waterfront

Original Author: 
Shirley Leung

One of the greatest joys of going to lunch at Sam’s on the South Boston Waterfront has been the free parking.

It was a small lot, maybe a dozen spaces, but I could drive up and a few steps later be inside eating oysters and taking in the postcard views. A completely suburban experience in the most exciting part of the city.
