    Locations
    Copley Square in the middle of downtown Boston, Copley is best accessed by the green line of the T (Copley Square stop).
    Google Maps: Copley Square - Google Maps

    The Org is located at 448 Beacon Street in the Back Bay area of Boston. Parking near the org is scarce, so we recommend using the green line of the T (Hynes Convention Center stop) if you are not marching with the group. It is at the intersection between Hereford and Beacon. Protesters are generally discouraged from standing on the corner with the church, but should be able to occupy any of the other three corners.

    South Station is a public transit hub. We will me moving from the org on to the green line and transferring to the red line at the Park Street stop to get to South Station. If you intend to meet up with the Zombie march separately, it may be a good idea to exchange numbers with a trusted anon first, as the station is large and folks may be difficult to find.

    Parkman Bandstand, Boston Common is a central location in the middle of the historic Boston Common. Take the red, orange or green lines to Park Street (orange line can walk from the Downtown Crossing connector). When you exit the station, turn around and walk towards the large fenced off fountain. Continue in that direction until you see the idiots with flags running around a fancy gazebo. If you are arriving by car, park in the Boston Commons garage on Charles Street and walk up the park towards the T stops until you see idiots with flags.

    Long Wharf North Pier is located near the Aquarium and best accessed by the blue line of the T. You can transfer to the blue line from the green at Government Center. We will have folks waiting at Aquarium Station to direct everyone to the wharf.

    George's Island is one of the many island parks that dots the Boston Harbor. It is home to a civil war fort that was somewhat re-purposed for use in WWII as a watch point. If you're going to try to get there on your own, for some reason, here's the map. Google seems to have missed the mark a little, so aim for the big island with the fort on it and not the middle of the empty water like it says.

    If you need help planning your trip, we strongly recommend consulting MBTA.com > Official Website for Greater Boston's Public Transportation System or Google Maps's public transit options. Rides are $2 with unlimited transfers, so you can double back and switch lines as much as your paranoid little heart desires. Taxis and parking are expensive, and that money is better spent on booze. If your group does not already have contact info for at least one Bostonanon in the event of navigational meltdown, please correct this before your arrival.

    Scheduling question: anything, informal or not, planned for Friday, for those who arrive early? I understand there'll be at least a few getting in well before Sat morning.

    Question: Does Boston have a collection of spare signs like some cells do or should the airplanefags plan to hit up an office supply store once in town?

    Also OMG THEY'LL KNOW WE PLAN TO BE IN THE BOSTON COMMON AND COPLEY SQUARE. WE'RE SO SCREWED.

    Also I second the "hey wtf is there to do in town on Friday" question.

    Just plan your T (subway) route ahead of time if you can. Pay attention to the color of the line. Once again: MBTA.com > Official Website for Greater Boston's Public Transportation System. And yes, there is a fuckton of people using the T at all times.

    One of the Bostonanons is planning an informal tour of the city Friday night. We won't be posting details here as this will be an unmasked adventure.

    As far as signs, Boston doesn't have a lot left so we'll need to do a sign making night at some point. Maybe that'll happen Friday?

    Important Note Regarding George's Island:
    The water pipes on the island got fucked over today. They should be fixed for Monday, but we have been advised to suggest folks bring their own water to the island just in case. Hydrated anons are happy anons!
