One Of a Kind Loft in Charlestown
If you are looking for a one of a kind loft in Boston, you have come to the right place. I shot this amazing loft yesterday and immediately fell in love. The exposed beams, the reclaimed pine floors, the open layout and the attention to detail, all make this one of my top 10 favorite homes in Boston. This is one of those places that will make you move to Charlestown even if you weren’t considering it before.
The History of this building is also absolutely amazing. This was the old training field school which was relocated across the street and overlooks the field it was once situated. A Bit of the History can be read here, and the park used to be an old training field for colonial militia.
The bottom line is someone I know needs to buy this!! It’s 2200sf. 3 beds, 2.5 baths and an office. The bedrooms are huge and the layout is perfect. The bedroom has views of the city and of the masts of the US Constitution.
Price… 1.2 Million
Here are the pics, and if you know someone who is looking for something like this, Give me a call.
Today I went to Allston to Shoot a great 2.5/3 bed right on Comm Ave. It was in my old stomping grounds and brought back some great memories of the year and a half I lived in the area. This was a large unit all on one level and had a really nice open layout. The living room was large and the dining room is huge, big enough to turn into a legitimate 3rd bedroom if you want. The kitchen is renovated and has plenty of space to make it a fully functional eat in kitchen as well. The hallways add to the spaciousness and creates a nice flow to all the rooms in the condo. I was told the square footage was around 1200sf and the price will be in the neighborhood of $450k, but I can confirm that at a later time.
Recently took some photos for this large 1 bed located at the Vendome Building at 160 Commonwealth Avenue. I was told the listing price would be around $3900.
If you are in Boston today, I know you wont be able to stop yourself from going to Boylston Street. So many police, so many guards, so much media, so bizarre. Go there, check it out, but leave. Thats not what Boston is about and the people who did this want you to go see their destruction and chaos. Walk away, go two blocks the other direction. It’s a glorious day in Boston and hands down the best of the year. See what makes this city beautiful and go enjoy what makes this place great. Take your mind off the media and yes, I hope that they really do have a suspect in custody.
I never intended to write anything deep and serious on my blog, but the event yesterday really put things into perspective for me.
Yesterday, my eyewitness of this tragedy wasn’t of the immediate carnage that happened on Boylston, but this is the way I experienced it.
I was eating lunch at the time and was 3 blocks away from the blast, but oddly didn’t hear or feel a bomb go off. I didn’t witness a plume of smoke or see fleeing people. I got a few text messages at lunch asking: “where are you” and if “I was ok” and “what the F’ was going on down there?” I wasn’t sure what was going on and after those first texts I became confused and tried to find some answers. I briefly found a few articles on possible explosions, but soon after, I wasn’t able to get cell service. I had full bars on my phone and neither my girlfriend nor I could connect to a call, text, or get web access. It looked like a few others in the restaurant couldn’t do the same. I knew then something might be serious and immediately recalled trying calling home to New Jersey and NYC on 9/11 back in 2001, when there was no way of getting through, and that is exactly what happened here. At this time I still didn’t know of extent of the damage done, or the serious nature which was going on just a few hundred yards away. We were soon asked to leave the restaurant in a calm manner and that the cops were vacating the area. Nobody was charged their meals and we all walked out on Newbury Street to see confused but highly inquisitive people . My block had a few people that looked distraught, but unknowingly a few blocks away, people were fleeing, crying and injured, some gravely.
My girlfriend and I decided to get out of the area and go back to our place in Brookline which is around marathon mile 24 and 2 blocks from the course. We took the long route home since I didn’t want to walk near the Comm ave. or Beacon Street route. I didn’t even want to walk close to Fenway park because, well, I didn’t know what the “terrorists” had in store for Boston landmarks. Streets were gridlocked, cops on every corner and pedestrians walking aimlessly holding their cell phones searching for reception and looking for answers. The terrible thing is that on our route home, we saw all the ambulances come into the city, and we saw most of the ambulances leave the city as they went to the Longwood area hospitals. It was obvious that there were far more injuries than the 22 that I originally saw on the news.
The transition of the walk home was bizarre. We went from an evacuation, then through traffic and confusion, then through all the Fenway drinkers on Boylston Street, then back to the active runners on Beacon Street at Audubon circle. That was a difficult thing to see coming back. At that time, Audubon circle was the new marathon finish line. A few spectators were there, cheering people on, wanting to be supportive that this was the end of their journey. This intersection was also the end to months of training and defined the runners disappointment of not being able to go the last 2 miles. Runners weren’t looking for claps and cheers, some were crying and most had empty looks in their faces. Those runners, like me, didn’t really know what happened 2 miles ahead of them, but they were aware that someone destroyed an event, destroyed dreams and ruined a feeling they so hoped to achieve. I didn’t clap, I didn’t cheer, because frankly, I don’t think they wanted to hear it. That experience (although secondary to the injuries and lives lost at the real finish line) was terrible to see.
Like most of you, the first thing I did when i walked into the door was to become glued to my TV and my computer. I finally posted something to Facebook telling people I was ok ,and in no time, it had 30 likes and countless comments. My girlfriends friend also came over because she had nowhere to go. She manages a store directly across from the blast and she and her staff ran away from the scene expecting more tragedy and chaos. She was by far more shook up than us and we were happy to have her over. Hearing her experience about the sound and the turmoil was shocking and I can’t even imagine how it was for people who just across the street. We all passed most of the first hour back finally making calls to loved ones who had checked in.
Like everyone else, I was absolutely inundated with real time video and countless photos. I saw stories of heroes, pictures of victims and videos of disaster on the web. Some images rocked me to the core and if you saw it, you know which one I’m probably talking about. . During all the media coverage I was going through photos on my iphone and I noticed I had taken a photo of this tent. And this is what sparked me to write something on my blog.
This is the medical tent that houses many runners who finish the marathon that need attention for cramps, dehydration and injury. I took this last Friday and meant to post this picture on my facebook page on with a rant. I was going to say something in relation to how this screws up Boston and how terribly it clogs up traffic for about 4 days in Back Bay and the South End. For the past 6 years of owning a car in Boston, this tent has always gotten in my way. For some reason I forgot about it and never posted my online tantrum about being inconvenienced.
When I saw this photo, I was shocked to see it and was reminded of my thoughts surrounding this tent and I was so disappointed with myself and was relieved for not posting something so superficial. I thought this days before the marathon, and who knew that yesterday would happen. Minutes before seeing my photo, I had just read a story online about this tent, and how it turned into the first response shelter for blast victims and how it was essentially transformed into a trauma tent for people who lost limbs and housed the dead. This is where it all happened. The block that should have delivered sustenance and aid to accomplished athletes, now was the epicenter of a war zone. As a result of seeing my photo and that story, a different reality set in and I knew that this city would be changed from years to come.
Boston won’t be the same for a while and our/my perspective isn’t the same either. Some witnessed carnage that only some in war may have only seen, while others feel scared and vulnerable. Others want revenge, but I want justice, and have faith in all those who make this country and city great. I know we are resilient city and we will bounce back from this terrrible tragedy more united and stronger. I look forward to next years marathon, but I know it won’t be the same. There will be a somber overtone and the finish line will bring back memories, and for many, too traumatic to return. Next year when I see this tent go up I will remember those who were lost, those who were injured and the heroes that jumped into action. I look forward to seeing the tent again and will gladly be stuck in several blocks in gridlock traffic just to know my city has bounced back. I work next door and walk by the bomb sites almost everyday and sometimes multiple times a day. I just can’t believe those spots will soon have a memorial remembering those who were lost.

Another Timelapse Video of Boston
It has been a while since I found a worthy timelapse video of Boston to post. I recently came across this one and think its pretty good and he was a little creative with his shots and perspective. I’ll keep them coming as long as people keep making them. One of these days i’ll figure out how to do film editing and i’ll make one myself. Enjoy
125 Mt. Vernon Street. The Old Charles Street Meeting House.
I was looking at new listings yesterday and this one popped up. I have to say I have yet to see this, but it looks pretty unique and unlike anything else that usually comes up in Boston. It looks like it could use some updating, but how much is the question. You are definitely paying for location and history, but at $1225 per sf, we will have to see if it gains that $4.9 million asking price.
Before seeing this listing I did not know of the history of this building, but it is definitely rich with everything Boston history is all about. Wikipedia and iBoston have a good brief history description of this home and gives a little insight into the 1980′s restoration and renovation.
All photos are from MLS and the listing is offered by Bruce Mclean of Coldwell Banker.

Back Bay Street Cleaning Starts April 1st.
It’s possibly my least favorite thing about Boston and it starts up in the Back Bay tomorrow. Other neighborhoods started March 1, but as of now Back Bay is April 1st. I do have a feeling Back Bay move it earlier in the future since its more revenue for the city. It’s time to get used to the color orange and a nice trip to Casey’s towing lot in Dorchester. Happy Spring!!

Are you Looking For Space Saving Furniture?
I posted this video a while ago and just noticed that the company also has a pretty cool other video, so i added that as well. If you live in a small studio you should check this video out. If you live in a large home, you will still find these pieces of furniture really amazing. I did a little “googling” and found out that the company is Resource Furniture and well, their products are pretty awesome. It looks like the nearest store is in NYC, but I think there needs to be a showroom here in Boston.
Also, Here is a great history video that juxtaposes the new and the old versions of space saving furniture.
