PHOTOS: Ink Block Demolition Continues on Harrison Ave

The "Ink Block Boston" logo hangs around the site of the demolished former Boston Herald building. Construction for the new Whole Foods supermarket and 475 apartments began after a groundbreaking ceremony on April 11, 2013.

The former Boston Herald building is officially no more.

Demolition has been underway for the last several weeks at the Harrison Ave site of the future Ink Block Developement, a $ 200 million mixed-use project that will feature hundreds of apartments and a Whole Foods supermarket.

At the demolition site this week, construction crews used a crane and a wrecking ball to tear down the small portion remained standing of the Herald building.

Construction began on the six-acre site in 2013 with a ceremonial ground-breaking. The project is scheduled to be fully completed in 2016. The Whole Foods supermarket is expected to open in late 2014

Share: Your Photos of Boston’s Rainbow

Last night a huge rainbow – double rainbow in some parts of the city – spanned the evening sky. In some places, people could even see a full arc.

People took to Twitter to talk about its significance. Was it a belated Boston Pride surprise? Was it a sign that Obama was in town? Was it because the light was refracting off the condesation in the clouds? Whatever you thought it meant, share your photos with us all.

PHOTOS: Neighborhood Cleanup Day at Harriet Tubman Park

Last weekend, several South End residents got together to spruce up Harriet Tubman Park, an annual cleanup that takes on special significance this year.

This year marks the 100th Anniversary of Harriet Tubman’s death, a fact not lost on the volunteers who came out to spruce up the park. 

“There is special significance to cleaning up the park named after her, which also features the first statue honoring a woman on Boston-owned property,” said Scott Mabel of the Pilot Block Neighborhood Association.

While several neighbors raked, swept, and weeded the park, others cleaned up the sidewalks and alley entrance areas, he said. About 15 people volunteered in all to clean up the park and some of the nearby alley areas.

The park also features an interesting geo-cache, where more than 80 people have already logged their visits to the park. 

Mabel said he frequently sees visitors to the park posing with the statue and taking a second to reflect on Tubman’s historical significance.  read more
