If you are familiar with Lexington specifically Waltham St. and Mass Ave., can you tell me if they are closing most of the small stores next to Vinney T's to build new condos? What do you think of this new development and how it will change the look and feel of the town?

They are moving ahead with the project after much discussion and hand-wringing. There will be shops along the street when the building is finished.

The problem is that the rents are too high and we are getting mostly banks and real estate offices, who obviously can pay the price.

The Inn which was torn down was very ratty and did not do Lexington justice. It's unfortunate that there will no longer be an inn in town (there are lots of new hotels along 128 in Waltham and Burlington) but i think the new building will be an improvement in appearance.

Was there a shop that you particularly liked? Maybe it has moved to another location.

I liked Rosie's bakery and the hobby shop,shoe repair. Basically, I hate to see the mom and pop stores falling by the wayside.
