While trees are great (I'm pro tree), they do pose different threats in city environments than they do in the suburbs. I've accepted as a city dweller, that I won't be exposed to much trees, but hey - I chose to live here.
If Patrick is concerned about privacy, he should get blinds or curtains. I have no trees near my apartment, and I make do.
I do believe that some landscaping and fixing of the brick sidewalks (all around the city) would be a good start in bringing back the curb appeal

the Green Line issue did not leave me in the cold today - however the general operating issues with the MBTA left me in the cold. As a MBTA bus user, it's baffling as to why on the coldest, snowiest, and rainiest days the service is so poor. They should by now realize supply and demand and know that on those days the demands are going to be greater. A few months ago I watched as 6 busses drive by me on a torrential rainy day, and today, while the temperatures were in the negatives early this morning, 2 (non-full) busses drove by on the MBTA #9 route in South Boston. I don't know when the MBTA will make changes and address these issues of supply and demand.
