On the Market: A Princessy Pad in Back Bay

376 Marlborough Street #4, Back Bay

    On the Market: A Princessy Pad in Back Bay
    This itty bitty studio maximizes all of its 320 square feet. Some days, the brownstones of Back Bay feel more like castles than townhouses. That's certainly the case for this condo tucked inside a grand building on Marlborough Street. It's fit for a princess, thanks to its sparkling chandelier, fireplace, rose-colored accents, and pastel finishes.

Object: Indian, Turban Ornament (Sarpech) (detail), 19th century, white nephrite jade base, with gems set in gold, and a gilded metal pin.

Wednesday, May 30, 5:30 pm – 6:30 pm – Esplanade Tree Care Management and Succession Plan Presentation

Over the last several years, the Esplanade Association has focused its efforts heavily on the health of the park’s more than 1,700 trees. In fall 2017, EA worked in partnership with the Massachusetts Department of Conservation and Recreation and a project consultant (Kyle Zick Landscape Architecture) to draft a comprehensive Esplanade Tree Care Management and Succession Plan. The plan will build on the existing 2015 tree inventory to create a multi-year maintenance and planting plan, ensuring a healthy tree canopy for future generations. The Garden Club of the Back Bay contributed to the inventory of trees. The Association is delighted to present the draft of this plan for your review and comment. Please join us on Wednesday, May 30 from 5:30pm to 6:30 pm at Fisher College’s Alumni Hall to learn more and share your feedback. RSVP to info@esplanadeassociation.org.

Participants will begin indoors at the Arboretum’s Weld Hill Research Building with a lecture and then move outdoors to Hemlock Hill and Bussey Brook for a fern foray. Dress for indoor and outdoor learning. The class will take place Friday, June 1, from 2 – 5 (originally scheduled for June 3, so take note.) Fee $40 Arboretum member, $50 nonmember.
