1. General.

We have received interesting comments on facebook on our two recent reports. I have cleaned up some typos.

Ari Ofsevit commented:

Wait, how does the Grand Junction bridge go to Harvard? MIT, sure, but it doesn't really go anywhere near Harvard

B. Response.

Hello Ari,

Welcome as a new friend of the Charles River White Geese.

Your question shows you know the turf, somewhat. Your question also shows why the Cambridge Machine has created an organization which runs around lying that they love the Charles River, followed by comments that if you love the Charles River, it is irresponsible to look at anything other than an ancient building that has not been used for 80 years.

The game is to have really major issues hidden through obfuscation tactics that have done a lot of damage in Cambridge during the City Manager regency which dates back to 1974. A lot of organizations have been created during that time which claim to be defending Cambridge and doing exactly the opposite.

One of the most recent fake groups, prior to the Cambridge Machine’s fight to destroy on the Charles River, was a group which claimed to be defending Alewife.

You just had to yell at the private developers exercising their zoning rights and ignore the behavior of the guys who created the zoning. The guys who created the zoning were fighting to destroy their part of Alewife.

The leader of that fake group then bragged of the first bunch of inexcusable destruction of irreplaceable acres of Alewife by her friends.

Please look at this posting on the blog at, and look at the second posting before it on facebook and on the blog at

The most important tactic of the Cambridge Machine is to lie about which side they are on and then stab their victims in the back.

Additionally, since you are clearly not fully familiar with the area, I am enclosing a map I have repeatedly published with my two reports. It is analyzed in detail in those two reports.

Please review my two postings in great detail.

The short part of the answer is, first, please look with great care at that rail yard / Mass. Pike exit on the far left of the aerial / satellite photo. The rail yard has been vacated. You will note that that area is across the Charles River from Magazine Beach. Further examination indicates that the Grand Junction rail bridge under the BU Bridge directly connects to that rail yard to Cambridge.

Harvard bought this area shortly after the MBTA proved the Grand Junction Railroad Bridge can be used as an exit from the Mass. Pike to Cambridge. An awful lot of environmental destruction is consistent with easing that off ramp into a position where traffic currently using the exits that Harvard now owns can be moved onto the new exit ramp. Other destruction is consistent with sharing the spoils.

Harvard’s recent purchase is larger than the Back Bay neighborhood. It very clearly is the future home of Harvard Medical School and related facilities. I can give you a whole bunch of other reports on that matter, but please start at looking at the reports directly on the point you are asking about and which you clearly have not read.

Thank you very much for your concern.

I think so highly of your comment that I will pass it on on the blog along with another comment on my most recent post.
