  1. It’s absolutely horrible how these beautiful homes are being torn down and replaced by 4 story 10 unit dwellings. I looked at 83 Winthrop next door. The size of the bedrooms are just bigger than a closet. I believe jail cells are bigger. And the rent is $2300. College dorm rooms are bigger. Is this the way of gentrification? Is this what we are bing reduced to type of living? Is this acceptable in our society? Is this what we call progress? To sell a beautiful home for 1.6 million and the get this!!!!!!! Is this American greed? Just some of my thoughts. I don’t know or have all the answers. But it just don’t seem right. Have a Happy Happy New year.
