1494-R Columbia Road,
And NO off street parking! As a matter of fact, no on street parking either!
Let us see:
January: Snow, winter, the Joggers with dreams of winning the marathon
February: Snow, winter, the Joggers with dreams of winning the marathon
March: Snow, winter, the Joggers with dreams of winning the marathon, & the Hordes for the St. Patrick's parade parking anywhere, everywhere and on the Greenie.
April: Start of Street Sweeping, towing, still the Joggers until the 19th
May: New holidays celebrated by the new comers, Cinco de Mayo, and the horse races, lots of parties, open window which increases the "Over-nite guests" and don't forget the roof decks with careless disposal of smoking materials
June: Moving in and out of people, trucks, maybe one to two weeks of available parking, barring an influx of commuters using the spaces on the Blvd that where habitually taken by the out of state plates.
July: Beach, Beach, Beach days - all that $$ for cleaning up the water and now I wish it was back to the sewage, dead fish and floating gangster bodies of the 1970s. Oh, watch out for the bottle rockets in early July, keep the screens down. Tip: the liquor stores no longer deliver to the beach.
August: See July!
September: Student turnover month, new faces, same problems, numerous "getting to know the Boston Police" parties, listen for the urban honking of horns of impatient Cab drivers waiting for fairs in late evening.
October: Tip, do your Christmas shopping early, after mid October, it gets ugly quick on the parking
November: early darkness and cold makes getting a space before 5 O'clock imperative or else you're parking down near Sullivan's Stand on Cassie! Think of PBS's Nature show, last one to the bat colony's caves doesn't get in & dies.
December: Warning: Do not move the space savers in the shoveled parking spots. Look on Christmas eve, only day of the year as to how South Boston looked back when there were parking spaces around.
