For Many, Obama Visit is Start of Healing Journey

Boston Athletic Association volunteers Patryk Kornecki, 20, and Robert George, 21, were at the starting line in Hopkinton when the bombs went off. They said after a dark three days, they found President Obama's speech uplifting, marking a new chapter in Boston's history.


The two blasts that rocked the finish line of the 2013 Boston Marathon caused physical damage to Boylston Street and killed or injured hundreds of innocent people. News of the bombing traveled backward along the 26.2-mile course instantaneously, affecting every inch of the annual race.

Three days later in a new, high-security Boston, local dignitaries, political officials, families of the three people who were killed in the bombings, hundreds of Boston Athletic Association volunteers, Boston Police, fire and medical personnel and The First Family gathered at the Church of the Holy Cross for an interfaith service in Boston’s South End to pray for the victims and to attempt to close this dark chapter of the marathon’s 117 year history.

President Barack Obama stirred the solemn crowd with a speech that highlighted the display of strength of a close-knit city and especially the victims.

“Know this,” he said. “As you begin this long journey to recovery: your city is with you, your Commonwealth is with you, your country is with you, we will all be with you for when you learn to stand and walk and, yes, run again. Of that I have no doubt: You will run again.” read more

Former Herald Building Demolition, Ink Block Construction to Start

Rep. Aaron Michlewitz grabs a brick from a pile of bricks from the former Boston Herald building.

In a ceremony filled with memories from Boston Herald employees and hope for the future development of the neighborhood, Mayor Menino, state reps and city officials gathered in the South End on Thursday to say goodbye to the old building and welcome the new Ink Block development. 

Menino said he was happy to see a bridge built between the South End, Chinatown and South Boston with the new development, and the first full-sized grocery store come to the South End.

“The South End deserves this type of development,” he said. “As part of the ongoing transformation of the South End, this project will grow the neighborhood’s vitality with its diverse housing mix, new pedestrian activity and retail energy.”

The new development, situated at the corner of Harrison Ave and Traveler Street, will feature 475 units of housing in five buildings and 85,000 square feet of  retail space, including a  50,000-square-foot Whole Foods Market, which will be the chain’s largest location in Boston. read more

Construction at the Ink Block apartment complex site on Harrison Avenue is slated to start in April, but not before a special ground-breaking ceremony is held on April 11. 

Called the “Ink Block Party,” the event will feature Mayor Menino, Boston Redevelopment Authority Director Peter Meade, Ted Tye, managing partner with National Development, the project’s developer, and Joe Fitzgerald, a columnist from the Boston Herald. 

Menino will be removing a symbolic brick from the old Boston Herald building, and Fitzgerald will share memories from the paper’s 54-year history in the building. The Herald re-located to the Seaport District in 2011. 

The finished $ 200 million development will include 471 apartments, a Whole Foods supermarket, and other shops and restaurants on the 6-acre site.
