GE Relocation Reveals the Innovation Hub Boston has become

"More than 40 states had vied for GE’s headquarters. Other venues started with some important advantages, such as no state income tax, lower corporate tax rates, lower energy costs, and lower housing costs. Had GE been focused on costs alone, Boston surely would have lost by a wide margin.

 

But GE had a different perspective. This is not Boston of the ’50s and ’60s, or even the 2000s.

Their commitment to community programs, particularly youth programs, makes our small operation and all those smiles possible.”

The ritual marked the start of what is now known as  'One Boston Day' as the city remembers April 15, 2013, when two bombs were detonated near the finish line, killing 8-year-old Martin Richard, 23-year-old Lingzi Lu, and 29-year-old Krystle Campbell, and injuring hundreds of others..."

"The champion of this department was Levy Restaurants, an event and catering company associated with Hynes Convention Center. Levy’s cupcakes were basically beyond words. I’ve never tasted a better crafted cupcake in my entire 26 year-cupcake-eating-life."

Ride Sharing Legislation's Impact on the BCEC and Seaport District

"The Boston Convention and Exhibition Center is warning that the bill to regulate Uber and Lyft now before the Legislature could cut the popular ride-hailing services from a large swath of South Boston’s booming Seaport District.

 

A measure that would give licensed taxis five years of exclusive rights to the BCEC would force the convention center to use a “geo-fence,” or electronic blocker, to restrict the app-based ride-hailing services from accessing customers there, said James Folk, the BCEC’s transportation director."
