FENWAY—John A. Keith deep-dives into Census data and comes up with this observation: "Looking at the Fenway, for example—probably 30-40% of residents are either undergraduate or graduate students, or just a couple years out of school. Yet, if you go to a neighborhood meeting, all you'll see are a bunch of grey-haired folk talking about the negative effects of institutional growth. The squeeky wheel gets the grease." [Hub]

EAST BOSTON—A pilot pens a paean to our airport: "Nobody, though, ever mentions Logan. And I don't think that's fair. It's squeaky clean, well-organized, and unlike the vast majority of US airports, it has an efficient public transport link to the city. It's even got some flair: what's not to like about the inter-terminal walkways, with their skyline views, terrazzo floors, and inlay mosaics?" [Ask the Pilot]

BEYOND THE HUB—There is no escape from high rents, there just isn't: "You'll need to pull down more than $31 an hour to afford a two-bedroom rental in towns and suburbs beyond the state's urban metros, such as Boston and Worcester, the National Low Income Housing Coalition finds in its annual report on housing affordability, or lack thereof."
