Hey Ben, 

Thanks for friending us. We are knee deep in the planning stages and everything is happening fast and furiously. I'm glad you got in touch. We would love to make local filmmakers a part of this journey. Let's stay in touch!

I am AMAZED that Randy mentioned the Beacon Line, that came out of left field....!! Thats good news; Steve always seems loathe to discuss it...I think Steve is more in favor of an incline railway, but doing something with the spur, always made the most economic sense to me. Its been a nice daydream up till now....I sure hope Randy will get a group together to research this issue!

Hi Ben,

I was reading your response to Venessa's new post and saw that you mentioned a senior high-rise on 9D. Do you know where I can find more information about this building. I have an elderly mom who I might have to move up here from NYC. Thanks.

thanks for backing me up in the calm and measured way!
I know I often sound like a "flying off the handle" crazy man.
