Check Out a Virtual Tour of the Curley House on March 23

The Emerald Necklace Conservancy’s recently expanded offices at the former home of Boston Mayor James Michael Curley, one of Boston’s most notable (and notorious) mayors. And they're giving you the opportunity to check out it out -- virtually. Although the Conservancy’s staff have been working remotely for the past year, they can’t keep this historically rich landmark overlooking Jamaica Pond to themselves any longer. The Curley house, located at 350 Jamaicaway, is situated just across the street from Jamaica Pond, the largest standing body of water in the Emerald Necklace park system. The 21-room, neo-Georgian mansion is registered as a historical landmark in Boston, however, the conservancy has not made any notable changes.

Scooter Duo Films Stunt on Rush-Hour Jamaicaway

So I'm driving the Jway on Thursday around 4 p.m. and see two young men on scooters, one with a helmet cam. The cameraman rode behind as his buddy popped a wheelie and rode down several blocks of the Jway on his rear wheel. As a square 45-year-old, I was of course aghast. And that was before the guy with the camera took off his helmet to examine the video — while still riding along the Jway. Doing my own unsafe driving activity, I took two photos as I came alongside.
