Police: Man Fights Taxi Driver, Police Officer on Tremont Street

The following information was supplied by the Boston Police Department. Charges listed do not indicate convictions.

A California man was arrested in the South End on Saturday for allegedly fighting both a taxi driver and a police officer. 

A taxi driver flagged down an officer at about 2:38 a.m. on June 15, claiming that a customer had punched him in the head after he told the man to get out of the cab.

The cab driver identified the suspect as a man who was standing on the corner of Tremont Street and Hanson Street, police said. An officer then approached the suspect and asked him what had happened. Police said the man appeared to be intoxicated. The suspect then asked the officer for a lighter. When the officer asked again what had happened, the suspect turned and walked away.

When the officer followed and attempted to grab the suspect by the arm, the suspect reportedly tried to break free by striking the officer’s forearm and kicking him in the shins, police said.  According to the report, the suspect then threw a punch to the officer’s chest. The officer then took the suspect to the ground, where the two struggled until more officers arrived. read more

Clarendon at Tremont Street Intersection: Too Dangerous?

In a previous, “You Ask, Patch Answers,” column, several South End residents brought up the intersection of Clarendon Street at Tremont Street near the Boston Center for the Arts, and the confusion that occurs there on a regular basis about which lane can turn in which direction.

Reader Jim Smith said he’s concerned about the fact that it is legal for both lanes to turn in both directions onto Tremont. 

“I think there’s a huge amount of confusion when most folks in the left lane on Clarendon are preparing to turn right onto Waltham and sometimes the right lane from Clarendon turning left onto Tremont attempts to go straight toward Berkeley Street causing a near collision,” Smith said. “I think that signs and street marking should be installed indication “right lane must turn right” and “left lane must turn left” from Clarendon but haven’t made any headway. I’m wondering if others have had the same thought/experience there.” read more

Letter: Tree Removal on Tremont Street Comes as a Surprise

Dear Editor,

This morning I woke up to the pleasant noise of chain saws and wood chippers outside my windows.

I look out and the city has cut down 3-4 beautiful trees that lined our street. There was no notice of this happening, and they destroyed my privacy and curb appeal. 

I know that other residents of the area were upset as well. The trees were beautiful and healthy. They withstood the winds of Sandy without breaking a limb. 

The trees were located alongside the building 655 Tremont Street on W. Brookline where Gold Gallery is. 

My windows are directly above Gold Gallery looking out onto W. Brookline. I now have no privacy, and the street looks horrible. They also destroyed our brick sidewalk in the process. 

I thought I would bring this to your attention so we can get some neighborhood awareness about this, and prevent things like this happening in the future. 

Let me know if you have any questions, and go take a look; it is bad! read more

Removed Tremont St. Trees Presented Public Safety Hazard, According to City

The view on the corner of Tremont and W. Brookline with the trees removed.

A big shock came to residents of the Tremont and W. Brookline area this week, when three trees marked for “maintenance” were completely removed. Resident Patrick Miller wrote in to South End Patch noting that the tree removal destroyed his property’s curb appeal and privacy.  

“My windows are directly above Gold Gallery looking out onto W. Brookline,” he said. “I now have no privacy, and the street looks horrible. They also destroyed our brick sidewalk in the process.”

It wasn’t long before others began to share their own concerns. Reader Omar wrote that he was very disappointed – and borderline angry –  to see the trees removed from the block.

“Trees are a key component of West Brookline Street’s charm and beauty,” he wrote. “The fact that the removal came without warning adds insult to injury. The neighborhood should be more aware of this kind of activity and prevent it in the future.” read more
