Boston Gets High Marks for Parks

Residents are determined to "take back" the Dartmouth Pocket Park, pictured in this photo gallery 10 years ago.

Bostonians regularly enjoy our parks, whether it’s large like Boston Common or small like Ringgold Park. But according to new national rankings, Boston’s parks are some of the best in the entire country.

Boston’s parks were ranked third in the United States by the Trust for Public Land, tying with San Francisco and Sacramento, and coming in just shy of Minneapolis and New York City. 

The ranking report used mapping technology and demographic data to determine how well the 50 largest cities in the United States are meeting the need for parks, including how much access citizens have to parks and park amenities. 

“We are proud of the fact that Boston has so many easily accessible parks and welcome the recognition,” Mayor Thomas Menino said. “From the pastoral expanses of the world-famous Emerald Necklace to our smallest neighborhood playground, Boston’s residents have a wide variety of well maintained parks providing them with opportunities to exercise or just relax within a short walk from their homes.” read more

Markey or Gomez: Who Gets Your Vote?

Gabriel Gomez and Rep. Edward Markey will face off in the U.S. Senate special election June 25.

A week from Tuesday, Massachusetts voters will decide who to elect in the special election to fill the seat vacated by U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry. 

What we at Patch want to know is – if the election was today – who would you vote for?

Candidates Democrat Ed Markey and Republican Gabriel Gomez have been pullling out all the stops in the last two weeks as the latest polls show the gap is narrowing between the two. 

After weeks of relative quiet, the negative ads have started to clog the airways and both candidates have had high-profile folks stumping for them. Rudy Guiliani was in town last week putting his support behind Gomez and President Obama came to Boston this week showing his support for Markey.

So tell us, if you had to vote today who would be your choice, Markey or Gomez? Tell us in the comments section below.

Boston Gets Gmail

If you correspond via email with any of Boston’s city employees, you probably won’t even notice a difference. 

But starting soon, the city of Boston will be switching its email system from Microsoft Exchange to Google Apps, a cloud-based email and communication system that the city says will save about 30 percent each year. 

“By bringing city government into the cloud, Boston continues to modernize our technology while saving taxpayer dollars and freeing up city workers to focus on the vital work of helping people,” said Mayor Menino. “Our technology experts will now be able to focus on moving the city forward, rather than maintaining servers.”

The city has about 75,000 email users, including individual announts for its 57,000 Boston Public Schools students. Previously, the city had been using several email servers, many needing technical upgrades. 

The city said the move will save upwards of 30 percent on communications and technical costs. It was spending $ 8.25 per user per month to host its email servers on Microsoft Exchange and Symantec Vault, the mayor’s office said.  read more
