I took an easy two-and-a-half-mile walk through the Brooks Estate on Saturday, which was officially Day One of my COVID quarantine. I felt fine and kept my distance from the few people I encountered. Here is some background on the property, which, sadly, is in pretty rough shape. Click on any of the images for a larger view.
Commuter train heads from Wedgemere toward West Medford on Tuesday afternoon.
The Boston Globe has published a terrific story by reporter Lisa Wangsness and photographer Dina Rudick about a Congregational church in our West Medford neighborhood.
It was right down the street from us when we lived here in the early ’80s. When we returned to a different part of West Medford in late 2015, we noticed it had become a Haitian church and that the Congregationalists had moved into a storefront in West Medford Square. The storefront is called the Sanctuary United Church of Christ.
Now I know what happened.
