  1. Hahahaha…birds in Wagamama?!?! Must be a tourist. Anyone who lives here knows that Faneuil Hall is an open air market. Esp the restaurants, they alllll have the wall/windows open to the patio for the summer. That being said, anything from leaves, to birds, to rubbish, to even unwanted tourists can make their way into these establishments. Chill there 311er.

  2. “Please remove these people”

    Some of these 311 reports really show people’s true colors. They remind me of comments I saw here about trash pickers.

    I encourage the submitter (and the submitters of several other similar reports) to check out the websites of Boston Public Health Commission’s Homeless Services Bureau and the Friends of Boston’s Homeless.

    If the submitter is a local resident, I’m disappointed in my neighbors. And I hope they get help as much as I hope the people without shelter do. Remember, these are people just like you and I. They cannot and should not be “removed”.
