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.

On Saturday, June 10, however, Cambridge residents will be awarded gift cards ranging from $50 - $200 for each firearm they securely dispose of to public safety officers at the city’s third annual Gun Buy-Back.

Alternative Facts?

...nah, not really

I was reading an interesting article in the Cambridge Chronicle about the old Harvard Square Theater. 

The building is located on Church Street and I walk past it every week on my way to class. 

It has always caught my eye because of the beautiful nostalgic murals painted on the building's exterior.
