Mice, mold & rats

A visitor to 48 Brighton Ave.

The BU Daily Free Press writes about some pretty gross conditions, and gross violations of housing codes, at some addresses in Allston, including 48 Brighton Avenue. When it snows, you can tell you have reached the building because the owner/management company/slumlord never shovels the sidewalk.

Since the management company refuses to give contact information for the owners to tenants, I thought I would help them out. The Assessing Department lists four owners: Wayne Siegel, Kevin Ryan, Joseph Ciliberti and New Brighton Realty Trust. Based on what I could find in public records, Joseph Ciliberti lives at 12 Marshfield Road, Newton. He is also an owner of Brighton Realty. There is a post office box in Brookline listed on the deed, but that’s not what we’re looking for. That’s all I got, let me know if you have any leads.

Somewhere in Allston: Thieves Grotto

“Allston Pudding” covers the local music scene, focusing on discovering and promoting the local bands that don’t get a mainstream mention, never mind a real club to perform in. This review liked the crowd, the high basement ceilings of the literally underground Thieve’s Grotto, and all the bands. The ‘Foxes as Pets’ members are all of 16 and 17 years old, and must have borrowed mom’s car to make the drive all the way from Scituate. Thieve’s Grotto takes place in a seriously undisclosed location, somewhere in Allston.

The Brighton Allston Heritage Museum will hold a celebration of its five years of promoting and preserving local history this Saturday, February 25 from 2 to 3:30PM. The museum is located in the Smith Senior Center, 20 Chestnut Hill Avenue, Brighton Center and is well worth a look.

Mystery zoning hearings

The Board of Appeal will have hearings on a number of local properties Tuesday, February 28 at 9:30AM in City Hall. Unfortunately, the city has not sent out any information on what the owners are proposing, so we’ll just have to wait and see.
