CAMBRIDGE—Marc Levy is having none of that Most Exciting Suburb crap: "Cambridge isn't 'outlying' from Boston, and it's not mainly residential. Just having a larger city nearby doesn't make a city a suburb of another city. Somerville is not a suburb of Cambridge. Saugus is not a suburb of Melrose (which is bigger by a few hundred people). Boston is not a suburb of New York." [Day]
SOUTH BOSTON—There's a folk-hero-in-the-making collecting space-savers so you don't have to: "'People text me pictures of cones, and act like I have a cape and a mask on,' he said. 'Do it yourself. Have pride. I do it because it's ridiculous that I have to do it.'" [Globe]
CHARLESTOWN/EVERETT—Boston continues to concern itself with the proposed Steve Wynn casino in neighboring Everett. A public meeting is scheduled for Tuesday. [Patriot-Bridge]
EAST BOSTON—Work has started on the 177-room Hilton Garden Inn off McClellan Highway: "Over the past two weeks what was once a jungle of overgrown weeds and trees has been cleared and prepared for the first phase of construction. A groundbreaking will most likely be scheduled for the spring." [Times-Free Press]
