Whimsical Monday

This is a section of the Stata Center at MIT. It is a must see if you ever visit the Boston area. You can see the front view from a post I did in June 2007. The building was designed by Frank Gehry; another Frank Gehry building can be found on Prague Daily Photo. Information on the MIT building can be found on MIT's website here.

Scenes from Boston

Broadcasting updates.

 


Media on the corner of Arlington and Boylston Streets at the Public Garden. This is the corner the "Mr. Frosty" ice cream truck usually parks.

 


Police and National Guard vehicles and command center on the Boston Common. Heavily armed police from around the state are located at intersections and strategic locations throughout the downtown area and all transportation points.

Comfort Station on the Common

Descendants of the Earl of Sandwich opened a sandwich concession on the Boston Common late last Autumn. Spending a considerable amount of money, an old "comfort station" i.e. restroom, near the Parkman Bandstand was converted into a restaurant. I haven't stopped by for a sandwich yet, just a few pictures and a menu. You can read more about the restaurant in the Boston Globe.
