Great Boston accent on that last guy in the video. "People will be able to pull in here and "pak" and read their paper all the way into "Bawston"."

My dad used to work at Donuts Please, which was demolished when Alewife was built. There was also Hayes Oil Company there and an Amoco gas station.

Hayes Oil survived on Mass Ave until at least 2011. It’s gone now though.
