Happy Friday – Welcome to the Weekend!
“Early signs of spring”
With an asking price of $895,000, the Hull Street “spite house” is up for sale, listed by Cabot & Company. Ranging from 6.2 to 10.4 feet in width, legend has it that a man built the house at 44 Hull St. to spite his brother. The property has been a furnished rental with VRBO for a few years but the local family who owns it decided they would not be coming back to Boston and have now put it on the market. Universal Hub has more.
The owners of Suffolk Downs are looking to close a deal to sell the property to a local developer after the Massachusetts Gaming Commission voted to approve the sale. The closing date of the 161-acre property is set for April 27, read more at The Boston Globe.
Still have your doubts about ride sharing companies like Uber and Lyft? Uber fields thousands of reports each week from customers who accidentally leave items behind, and the list might surprise you. The Boston Globe has the full list that includes Nordic walking poles, paintings, engagement ring, and more!
