    If only we could deem other blight “moving” so those could be torn down as well. Like St. Vincent’s church…what a true waste.

      Do you wake up this grumpy or do you need a running head start?

        lol. It’s pure fact. It’s like a half acre plot in a highly sought after part of the neighborhood. They were so quick to tear down that house…why not tear down the church too while they’re at it? It’s not even a shot at the irish Catholics, it’s a shot at complacent land bankers.

        If you’re rent was 20% higher than what it should be, then you’d be annoyed too. Sounds like you bought pre 2012 and are fine with your overvalued home.

          Oh come on nowwww. I was just playin.

          Overvalued? In my opinion, we are just getting started! The amount of unsolicited cash offers that cross my table each passing week are amazing!

            Borrowing costs are rising, mass transit solutions are not formulating (aside from the seaport gondola which serves a small portion of the community), and BPS have been stagnant in terms of quality, rising seas are becoming a legitimate concern, new construction deliveries are at an all time high, the death rate is slowly starting to match the birth rate.

            There will be shift back to the burbs in the near future and inner city housing prices will decrease by 10%. Heard it hear first.
