Allston Apartment Affordability; Brookline Bike Rules

ALLSTON—More on that whole thing about the Green District and its $2K studios being "middle market" in Boston: "Transforming Allston into a neighborhood Boston's young professional want to live rather than have to live – and keeping the digs affordable – sounds, without question, like an idea people can get behind. But the term 'affordable' still needs to be defined." [BostInno]

BROOKLINE—The town toyed with the idea of adjusting how cyclists might approach red lights and stop signs: "One suggestion for cyclists has gotten plenty of traction recently: the Idaho Stop, named for a law first passed in Idaho in 1982 that allows cyclists to treat red lights like stop signs and stop signs like yield signs. Cyclists are big fans, but drivers and pedestrians bristle at the idea." [Boston.com]
