Pleasant Street became a little more pleasant a few weeks ago and we were reminded of that when we coasted down its newly paved expanse between East Cottage Street Stoughton Streets. The road's surface is as unruffled as a placid lake and with the trees in bloom, it is as picturesque as a postcard. This is one of the nicer streets around Columbia/Savin Hill.
New paving also recently occured at the intersection of Washington, Harvard and Bowdoin Streets just north of Codman Square. The manholes are still a little above street level, but still, this is a pleasure compared to the usually kettleholes and ruts we have come to expect in Boston.
Dorchester just gets nicer and nicer for a motorcycle ride.
