Stay safe and sound.....
We've been alerted of some very unpleasant anti-social behavior - using the corridor park as a public restroom. If you witness this, call the D4 Police Community Liaison at 617 343 4250.
Feel free to yell at them that there are public restrooms nearby at;
Southend Library 685 Tremont St
Back Bay Station
The Prudential Mall
The city has a useful page on where to find public restrooms all over the city. For details Click here
Ensuring Personal Safety
Let's hope, when leaving our homes, we have all got the message to keep at least 6 feet distance from each other and wear a face covering. It's tempting, as the weather warms up, to escape outside, put those ear buds in and day dream aliens might abduct your household. BUT please stay alert and aware of your surroundings. Police have alerted us that there is an up-tick of phones/bags being snatched as day dreamers stroll the corridor with both ear buds in. Try listening with one ear bud and stay safe!.

Who are you gonna call
In these tough times, we all feel conflicted about involving the police if we see a homeless person behaving strangely. But if you feel threatened, please don't hesitate to call 911. If you spot anti-social behavior call the D-4 Police Community Liaison at 617 343 4250. We have assurances from our local police and city officials that, if they get a call about a person clearly in distress, they are not necessarily arresting them, but bringing them to get help from city services.
Check your key/lock Box!
Recently, an unknown person attempted to take a key from an exterior lock/key box. They ripped open the key box ( no key was there) and tore the light sensor off the wall. The neighbor did the right thing and notified police.
