  1. when I was a kid growing up in the north end , the train used to go by and park on commercial st in front of my house this was in the 50″s and also the “L” went to south station via commercial st. and atlantic ave.

    1. Tony Strabone- I missed the elvated days note I’m was born in 1998 so I remember the Green Line going by my window every day, but for you that’s amazing too bad it’s gone now these days.

  2. Charles Maniscalco I left out that the “L” was not there it had been torn down before me .I just wanted to mention that it did.

  3. 12 to 21.5 bill, lot of butt covering in the estimate, plus no mention of time to completion. With the fares increasing and ridership on the T decreasing, it will be hard to justify the cost. Plus, getting the federal tax payer to fund something like after the Big Dig, well that will be hard to put over again.
