Neighborhood Photo of the Day:

Folks are still getting used to the big bellies showing up on various corners in the North End / Waterfront. This photo one is on the corner of Atlantic and Commercial Street, captured by John Hauck of the Living Room. He notes, “I think they block the view, along with the three bicycle racks on the corner, but people do use them and mis-use them as seen in the photo.  Maybe big belly needs a bigger mouth!”
