BEYOND THE HUB—And yet we have the same number of senators as them square states: "Bos-Wash stretches from Boston through New York, Philadelphia and Baltimore to Washington, D.C., a total of 500 miles. It is home to 18 percent of the U.S. population — 56.5 million people. The region generates $3.75 trillion in economic output, meaning that, if Bos-Wash were a separate country, it would be the fourth largest economy in the world, behind only the U.S., China, and Japan and ahead of Germany."

HUB-WIDE—'Tis hard enough hereabouts to find housing at any price point and then this: "There were 424 active condo listings in the city as of March 10, and only 178 — 42 percent — were priced at less than $500,000, according to the Greater Boston Association of Realtors. In 2010, 1,145 of the 1,836 condo listings — or 62.4 percent — were in that price range." [Herald]
