A North End Supermarket; South End Street Sweeping; More!

SOUTH END—Street sweeping in the neighborhood will be extended by two months, the Menino administration announced, going from March to December instead of April to November: "... street sweeping days will also be changed on the new signage to follow trash collection more closely (either by one or two days)..."

NORTH END/WEST END—About those reports of no supermarkets for the neighborhoods: "Apparently no one talked to the BRA. Senior Manager Peter Gori said he is confident a supermarket will arrive. Serious conversation is going on between Trinity and Stop & Shop about taking over the 21,000 square foot retail space Trinity has made available on the ground floor of its proposed One Canal Street residential complex, he said."

CAMBRIDGEBoston Daily reminds us that the Old Gray Lady published a visitor's guide to the People's Republic on Christmas Day: "Spread out along the tree-lined shore of the Charles River, the city is a dense collection of grand Federal and Greek Revival mansions and modest century-old bungalows, modern office towers and brick dormitories. Nicknamed Boston’s Left Bank for its bohemian image, Cambridge is easy to caricature, but hard to dislike." Absolutely on that first point (why, it's almost like you can do it without meaning to), and we'll leave it to others on the second. [NY Times]
