How are they going to get rid of all those smoke stacks? I really doesn't resemble a Wynn project view wise IMHO..
Doubtful, that is just the spot they chose. I think it's great they got property near the urban core and not out in the burbs. But part of that is there is some industrial stuff surrounding the location (the smoke stacks are not on the Wynn property as far as I can tell).
Does Boston Transit still have "Dime Time".... ten cent fares once the morning rush hour ends? If so, can you imagine trekking to a casino for a dime? Sure beats a flight to Vegas and a hotel room (even if comped). Ten cents and twenty minutes. Not even a trek to an outer suburb or something.
Ha, no. Fares are the same regardless of time of day. A ride on the T (subway) is $2.25 if you have a CharlieCard (the MBTA RFID card) which is free itself, or $2.75 if you just have a paper ticket. Local bus fares are lower, commuter rail higher, etc. and so on.

"The MBTA's only experiment with peak/off-peak pricing began in 1973. Dubbed "Dime Time", the program reduced rapid transit fares to $.10 on weekdays between 10:00 a.m. and 1:00 p.m. (later extended to 2:00 p.m. and extended to Green Line stations). Dime Time was not considered successful and was discontinued in 1975. A 1974 study by Decision Research, Inc. (DRI), was unable to quantify any gain in ridership."
How long has it been since you've been in Boston?

Lots of agitation here in the Boston metro area about changing the name, given Steve Wynn's various alleged sexual crimes. The corporation doesn't seem to care, saying the name "Wynn" is now more about the brand than the person. We'll see.
Given the Wynn casino's huge amount of 6-5 games in Vegas, honestly as a gamble I would be happy to see a different operator. MGM would be welcome by me, and maybe they would even have some S17 games.
