    by Colin A. Young on June 12, 2024 at 12:45 pm

    The epicenter of the region’s substance use disorder, mental health and unsheltered homelessness crises at Massachusetts Avenue and Melnea Cass Boulevard is “in a different and better, safer position” than one year ago, Boston Mayor Michelle Wu said Wednesday, but an influx of individual migrants is now stressing the city’s shelter system.

The humidity shouldn’t be a problem Wednesday, nor Thursday for that matter. We’re building into a very hot day Thursday though, as temperatures will touch 85° region wide. The heat that sticks around Friday will be a thorn in our side for a severe weather setting up Friday. Timing of storm Right now, we’re eyeing 1 p.m. to 8 p.m. first across western Massachusetts for storms to fire up, though there may be a few precursing showers across Vermont and […]

    by Jeff Cox,CNBC on June 12, 2024 at 8:31 am

  • TD Garden to host first Celtics watch party
    by Alysha Palumbo on June 12, 2024 at 6:40 am

    For the first time ever, Boston Celtics fans will get to have an away game party right inside the TD Garden. There won’t be a game on the parquet, but they’ll get to watch Games 3 and 4 on the big screens. The Celtics, the TD Garden and the city of Boston all teamed up to plan this massive playoff party for fans. They put more than 15,000 tickets on sale last week and they sold out the same day. And we should note, tickets were just $18, in honor of the run for Banner 18, and that’s a lot cheaper than getting tickets to any of these actual games that can run you into the thousands. Organizers say fans who come out to this Garden Party Wednesday night will really get to […]
