CITY SQUARE GAS STATION  NOW IN THIRD PLACE

What’s happening to City Square Shell, they have fallen to third place in the highest priced gas pump price in Boston. City Square came in a $2.59 per gallon and were beaten out by Egleston Square Mobil at $2.69 and by the Shell Station next to the Pine Street Inn over in the South End at $2.89 according to an irate cabbie I recently spoke with about pump prices.

Meanwhile, the best pump price is still over near Roslindale Square at ALFA for $2.19 per gallon.

 Remember they’re ALFA and the other three guys definitely the OMEGA!

  

DOWN AT THE OLD BANK BUILDING IN THE SQUARe

The other day while walking through Thompson Square, as I passed by the old bank building I now noticed the entire street level is now devoid of  occupants. Bunker Hill Florists moved out a while ago and now Sotheby’s real estate is gone too. What’s going on as Marvin Gaye once sang?

This old bank building is an architectural masterpiece and it looks so old and lonely with two dead storefronts staring at passerrbys. Personally, once again, I think a nice restaurant  would be a good match for the square and building. Let’s hope this building can come back to life soon.

FATHER RONAN TELLS IT LIKE IT IS

Father Jim Ronan, pastor of St. Mary’s/ St. Catherine’s Parish  always has great commentaries right here in the Patriot but recently, he had a great Post-Inauguration commentary in The Pilot entitled “One nation, under God.” As he stated at the conclusion of his piece, “We pray for the success of our new President Donald Trump and his administration. We pray that our greatest achievements are ahead of us. And finally, we pray we become even more, “One nation, under God, indivisible with liberty and justice for all”
