"Prepare for an Emergency?...uh...

N'haw! That's okay, thanks. I'm all set."

"Note to self: Think about maybe getting more of these." Image of battery.

(Author’s Note: THIS ARTICLE IS NOT ABOUT HOW TO PREPARE FOR AN EMERGENCY IN CAMBRIDGE.)

When you think about emergency preparedness, what comes to mind? Jugs of water in your closet? Cans of beans stacked in your kitchen cabinet? A battery-powered radio and flashlights, with extra batteries? A decent, basic first aid kit? Some single-use hand warmers? A heavy coat, in case it’s cold and the heat goes out?

Brattle Street Becomes Parking Lot

Bike Safety Effort Creates Visual Eyesore

Newly installed bike lanes on Brattle Street may prompt residents and visitors alike to rename it Brattle Street Parking Lot.

 

Instead of strolling down a tree-lined street with views of Radcliffe Yard and stately homes, what you first see from the west side of the street is two rows of parked cars.  As of Tuesday, July 11, the two-way bike lane stretched to Mason Street, but plans call for it to end at Eliot Street.
