ALLSTON—The new Hamilton Crossing shows the health of the rental market (if you're a landlord): "Opening in a few weeks, the studios, one- and two-bedroom apartments—ranging in size from 450 to 750 square feet and priced from $1,700 to $3,000—and are almost fully leased." [Biz Journal]

SOMERVILLE—The Community Path is thinking way ahead: "The path will be extended from its current end at Cedar Street in Somerville to Lowell Street, about one-third of a mile, and provide access to the path to the future Green Line station at Lowell Street. Work on the path, which began this week, is expected to cost $2 million. There are plans to further extend the path to Boston." [Patch]
BEACON HILL—'Cause it's all about New York City all the time everywhere, someone broke down which Boston neighborhoods are like which Gotham ones: "The back end of Beacon Hill, i.e. the less tony part = Murray Hill. The fellas sport grosgrain belts and gingham shirts and the LAX-friendly hairstyle known as "lettuce" while the blonde twentysomething gals rock pearls and flip-flops paired with Banana Republic workwear."
