Boston Public Transit Highest Budget Lowest Efficiency

Olivia Daprile Boston, MA Boston

Boston has one of the largest public transportation budgets, but one of the worst systems. After living in California, Chicago, and here, I can honestly say that the MBTA is one of the worst transit systems in the country. How do they spend $9 billion each year to be this terrible?! Let me know what you think the best public transit system is in the US! ... more

Doing More and Harming Less

Olivia Daprile Boston, MA Boston

After the IPCC report two days ago most of us are feeling pretty down about the future of our planet. We can stop feeling so hopeless and start using that energy to fuel our efforts. While reducing meat consumption and taking the bus are great ways to reduce your carbon footprint, there are plenty of other ways you can contribute as well! This is a local, international, and global issue. Here ... ... more

Get Out Of My Spot

John Jones Boston, MA Warrenton Street

Why doesn’t the city do its job and ticket non-resident cars parked in resident parking on SUNDAYS? The sign does not say except Sundays. It’s so frustrating not being able to park near my apartment because someone from New Jersey is parked in resident parking. I just walked around one block and I counted 11 non-residents just on one side of the street. It isn’t fair and I’m tired of paying ... ... more

Skanks on the Prowl

Alice Johnson Boston, MA Venu Nightclub

I am more and more shocked by the way that woman dress when they go out these days. It is scandalous. In a world with #metoo being more and more prevalent. Why are women taking a step back and letting men only look at them like sex objects? Wearing shorts that reveal your ass and thong is not empowering us, it is slowing us down. I know you need to make a dollar but there has to be ... ... more

Disgusted at Foodie’s

Darren Boston, MA Foodie's Markets

I was in Foodie’s getting some groceries and am rudely bumped into by some woman in the process of some woman screaming at her children. They could not have been more than four years old. She was very loud and aggressive and the kids were running around like wounded birds. I’m sure their behavior was decided by the way she probably talks to them daily. She told them they were terrible and ... ... more

Attorney Daniel Marx said Michelle Carter, now 22, was a misguided teen who was struggling with her own issues and had been trying to help Conrad Roy III. He said Roy was committed to ending his ... ... more

Man Flips Out Over Dog Pee

theholmeshead Boston, MA Union Park Street

I was walking my two dogs around my neighborhood and one of them peed on a black fence between the sidewalk and brownstone entry. It was clearly not intentional on my part and pretty much on the ground. Next thing, I hear a man from a window on the fourth floor screaming at me! I continue walking and from behind I hear, "Hey you....you with the dogs!"I turn around and there is the man from the ... ... more

Up All Night In Boston

Betty Ford Boston, MA The Grand Boston

For the night owls like my sister, this is a great read. It’s also a go to for the after hours in Boston and trust me there isn’t much to find. This helps. Chronicle stops by industry night at the Grand and then heads to the city's only 24-hour diner for a late night meal. Plus, see the early morning routine of WCVB's Eyeopener team. Chronicle producer Sangita Chandra and videographers Rich ... ... more

Bob The Dog Boston, MA Marathon Finish line
