DOWNTOWN CROSSING—Faneuil Hall is ready for its close-up after almost a year of dramatic internal renovations: "In a few months, visitors to Boston will have access to one of the most technologically advanced 200-year-old public buildings in the nation."[Boston.com]

ALLSTON—Courtney Hollands waxes nostalgic for that prime Boston Starter Neighborhood, Allston, via perusing the Allston Rat City Tumblr: "You’ll find graffiti, rants about the MBTA, and other assorted tales of the city. The first post I ever saw was a photo of a deer head tossed out with the trash bags on garbage day." That's the stuff. [Boston Daily]

THE FINANCIAL DISTRICT—'Tis the season for some wags to come up with an Occupy Boston-related critique of Mayor Menino set to "Frosty the Snowman." One real estate-related verse: "Frosty Menino has it out for Dewey Square/Says we are not clean/Wants to seed it green/Hope the judge will be more fair." [BostInno]
