Neighborhood Photo of the Day:

Most of the respondents in the poll like the new big bellies. Although placement is obviously key as shown in this photo sent in by Brian Cashin who says it “totally blocks a driver’s view of oncoming traffic and the bike lane. This is an accident waiting to happen.”

  1. Brian is absolutely right about the danger posed by the placement of these containers. It is frightening and dangerous to turn either left or right from Clark St onto Commercial St with the containers placed as they are. Happily for all of us, Stephen Passacantilli of Councilor Lamattina’s office has been extremely responsive in taking action to have them moved to a safe location.
