State Police Investigate Whether Unconscious Woman Was Victim of Crime

If you saw a great deal of police activity around Green and Amory streets on Monday about 7 p.m., here's what we know so far. According to State Police, a 21-year-old woman from a suburb south of Boston was found unconscious by the bike path near Green Street Station. She was only partially clothed, according to David Procopio, spokesperson for the State Police. The woman was taken to Brigham & Women's Hospital. She went in and out of consciousness, but State Police detectives say she had no "obvious external trauma" and couldn't remember what happened before she was found.


Arches at the Green Street Platform

Each weekday we post a random image from around the neighborhood. I'm always interested in the shapes and shadows from these types of roof supports. You see them at several T stations, including Green Street. The other photos you'll see if you flip through the gallery are from the Jamaica Plain News photo pool on Flickr. I know JP is stocked with good photographers, so please add your photos there if you'd like to share them.

Hubway has returned to Jackson Square. The station wasn't operational on March 19, 2014 but is expected to be soon.

Signs of Spring: Crocuses and Hubway Stations

The bike rental network Hubway, which finally reached bike-crazed JP just last fall, is gearing up for a new season. Rental stations (sans bikes) are already in place outside the Green Street and Jackson Square T stations. Other JP stations are expected to include one at the post office, the Monument, Hyde Square (Barbara and Centre) and Egleston (Atherton and Washington). Hubway says it expects its stations to be fully operational in a few weeks. There has been talk of moving the Monument station to the Curtis Hall parking lot.
