HUB-WIDE—Doug Most, an editor at The Boston Globe, has a new book out on the race to build North America's first subway. It was between New York and us. We won. Above is a photo of trolleys emerging from the subway in 1897, presumably running on time. [Atlantic Cities]

JAMAICA PLAIN—Josh Muncey details the top home sales in the neighborhood in 2013, such as the $2,155,000 trade of 45 Parley Avenue: "One of the most expensive single-family homes ever sold in Jamaica Plain, the previous owner meticulously renovated it and added things such as African mahogany stairwells, koi ponds, a pool, greenhouse, and more."
