Within this fair wall be Advanced Study. An entire institute of it. What happens in an institution of expert studiousness is something I do not know, admittedly being one of very little study these days. Perhaps of craft and practice, but not study.

Comcast (if you’re monitoring this), please, please lease some space near downtown or anywhere in Back Bay. Leaving work early to jump on a train and walk 30 minutes to return a former tenant’s cable modem… I’m not alone in this I’m sure. Yes, I benefitted from a dandy walk through Harvardian neighborhoods, but c’mon now.

Whatever the case, this place has quite the roof line. The intrigue, now that I think of it, is what the rooms with all of these fireplaces look like. I’m imagining elegant libraries, grande halls, and other schmancy interiors optimized for maximum study efficiency.

Behind the iron gates.
