MBTA Opens New Underground Training Facility

The MBTA has unveiled a brand new emergency training facility.

The MBTA Emergency Training Center is an underground facility located near the Broadway T Station in South Boston.

The facility contains multiple training areas dedicated to different modes of transit including heavy rail, light rail and bus, according to an MBTA statement.

The facility also has full-sized decommissioned bus and rail vehicles and a control room that can simulate audio and visual effects of a real-time emergency situation.

“The MBTA Emergency Training Center will enhance the MBTA’s ability to prepare for emergencies more realistically, frequently, and with fewer service or cost impacts,” according to an email by Joe Pesaturo, MBTA spokesman.

The facility opened as a streetcar station in 1917, but closed two years later due to redundancies. Since, the unoccupied space has been used for everything from material storage to growing mushrooms, according to the statement. read more

New Puerto Rican Restaurant Opens in South End

Angel Carrasquillo, owner of Mana Escondido Cafe in the South End.

15 years after he closed his Spanish restaurant business, chef and restaurant owner Angel Carrasquillo is right back where he started.

A few weeks ago, Carrasquillo opened Mana Escondido Cafe at 68 Aguadilla St. in the South End, in the exact space that used to house his former restaurant, Pioneer, in the ’90s. 

Carrasquillo ran Pioneer for five years before deciding to sell it and start a 15-year career in the property management business in Boston. But three years ago when he was laid off from that position, his mind returned to owning his own restaurant again. 

“The owner of the building gave me a call to see if I wanted to come back to the restaurant business, and I guess it was a perfect timing because that same week I was laid off from my job,” he said. “So I jumped into the opportunity to come back. It’s like déjà vu.”

Carrasquillo said that restaurants have been in his family for generations, and still are. His grandmother owned three restaurants in Puerto Rico, and now he, his wife, their parents and their two children are all working at the new restaurant.  read more
