Controversial Dewey Square Mural Coming Down

The large, colorful mural located along the Rose F. Kennedy Greenway at Dewey Square Park, which has drawn some controversy since it was created in July 2012, will be coming down this fall.

The 70-by-70-foot mural painted on the air intake structure between Summer and Congress streets has reportedly begun deteriorating and is due to be replaced soon, Greenway Conservancy director Charlie McCabe told Boston Magazine recently.

While no new artist had been selected, McCabe told the magazine he expects to announce what project will replace the mural by August, calling the space “a great and very visible canvas.”

Created by Brazilian twin brothers Otavio and Gustavo Pandolfo, known together as Os Gemeos, the mural was designed in coordination with the brothers’ first solo exhibition in the United States, which was on display at Boston’s Institute of Contemporary Art from Aug. 1 through Nov. 25, 2012.

The colorful mural depicts “a giant, yellow-colored character in brightly mismatched clothes who appears to have squeezed himself in between the towering buildings that surround him,” according to the description posted on the Greenway website. “These yellow-colored characters are an iconic and recurrent feature in Os Gemeos’s work, and are depicted in a wide variety of situations.” read more

Is West Nile Virus Coming to the South End?

A new interactive map shows you the intensity of West Nile season in the area.

After a particularly tough year for the West Nile virus in 2012, Massachusetts health officials are bracing for what could be another busy summer for the mosquito-borne illness.

Although, with so many factors playing into the problem, the track of West Nile is not an easy one to predict, said Kevin Cranston, director of the Bureau of Infectious Disease for the Massachusetts Department of Public Health.

“We can’t pin down all of the elements that go into why one season is bad and another season is not,” Cranston said.

But if this summer is similar to last summer—marked by extended periods of very hot weather—some parts of the state could see a high number of cases as occurred in 2012.

To give residents a sense of West Nile’s prevalence in the South End, Patch has pulled together county-level 2012 data from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention

Different factors play into outbreaks 

Long periods of warm weather can help accelerate the maturation of the type of mosquitoes known for spreading West Nile virus, Cranston said. Rainfall also might play a part in the problem, as these mosquitoes thrive in pools of stagnant water. read more

Improvements Coming to I-93 Overpass

Under the I-93 overpass.

Some important safety changes are coming to one of the sketchiest places in the South End: the area under the I-93 overpass. Don’t just take our word for it being sketchy – a fatal stabbing occured earlier this year. 

According to State Rep. Aaron Michlewitz, the Massachusetts Department of Transportation is working towards improving the area in hopes of finding another use for the space besides an empty gravel pit. 

“We’re hoping that we’ll do some type of construction paving sometime in the early spring, within the month,” said Michlewitz. “And once they start moving forward on that they’ll have an RFP process on what should go there in terms of parking, or other potential usage.”

MassDOT plans to spent about $ 1-2 million improving the lot, by paving and putting in additional lighting, with the idea that it will help make it viable for developer interest.

With significant developer interest already secured in the area through apartment complex and retail developments on Albany Street, Traveler Street, East Berkeley Street and Harrison Ave, the corridor between the South End and the Broadway MBTA stop in the South End will have an increased importance.  read more

Chris Christie Coming to Boston on Friday

Chris Christie

New Jersey Gov. and possible 2016 GOP presidential hopeful Chris Christie will be in Boston on Friday for a fundraiser, according to the Boston Globe.

The fundraiser, for Christie’s 2013 gubernatorial campaign, will be held at the Boston home of Christopher and Jean Egan. It is being hosted by former U.S. Sen. Scott Brown, former GOP gubernatorial candidate Charlie Baker and former U.S. Attorney Michael Sullivan, among others.

Christie is popular among Republicans and toyed with a run for president in 2012 before deciding not to run. He made numerous visits to key early-voting states like New Hampshire to stump for Republican presidential nominee Mitt Romney.
