Peabody Square Sleeping Moon Dedication

Embracing Dorchester's growing art community, the new and improved Peabody Square will include a sculpture by local artist and Ashmont Hill resident Joseph Wheelwright. Come join the mayor and Boston City Singers in celebrating this new Dorchester monument (will it rival the giant Clapp pear in Edward Everett Square? Can anything rival that pear?). The ceremony starts at 4:00 pm on Tuesday, October 26th (DATE CHANGE) and will be held at Ashmont Station Plaza at the corner Ashmont Street and Dorchester Ave.

We were incredibly disappointed when the Boston Globe discontinued the City Weekly section (we must admit we even canceled our subscription over it - well that and their negative depiction of urban teachers, which is an important part of who we are). We use to love drinking a fresh brewed cup of coffee and looking over the pages describing what was going on in the other 'hoods of Beantown. However, deep down inside we have always rooted for the Globe to turn itself around. We know they have the potential and there is still nostalgia there. So we think this may be the first step...

Today, the Globe and their website have launched a new section focusing on the neighborhoods of Boston. Although not all neighborhoods are featured yet, we are excited they have realized that the suburbs are not all that makes the Boston area great. Of course, they have chosen Dorchester as one of their first neighborhoods to cover, because of its undeniable hipness and amazing diversity (and we also assume because the Globe offices are located right here in Dorchester). So check out their site and be sure to let the Globe know what you think of it.
