Type of appeal : Rejected new submission
Portal title/location : Newton Town Hall Park Bridge, 42.337685, -71.207666

Unsure why this was rejected.  It is a picturesque bridge in the middle of a nice tree-covered park in Newton, and is outside the XM circle of any other portal in the area.  Vehicle traffic cannot reach this bridge, nor could it cross the bridge if it made it to the bridge.  The bridge leads to a nice grove of trees for picnicking or relaxing.  The picture of the portal is clear.  I have included a streetview picture to show distance from the road to the beginning of the bridge.  Bridge will not be reachable by automobile.

I'm all about portals that make you get out and walk, but what makes this different then any other walking bridge anywhere? Is there any marker, sign, plaque, dedication? Is there a unique or historical story?

Type of appeal : Rejected new submission
Portal title/location : Franklin Brewing Company, 3173 Washington St
Jamaica Plain, MA 02130
42.313341, -71.101001

This is a historic brewery building in Jamaica Plain, located within 1/2 mile of the Sam Adams And Haffenreffer breweries, both which are accepted portals.  This portal sits mid-block between three other portals, and is in a an "XM deadzone" with no portals in immediate proximity.

From a historical website: "At 3175 Washington Street we find the handsome Franklin Brewery; named for nearby Franklin Park, and rivaling ABC Brewery in architectural beauty. It was active from 1894 to 1918. Its beautiful façade was hidden from view by the elevated railway from 1912 until 1988. The initials FPC can now be seen at the 4th floor. It was a vertical brewery with six stories above Washington Street and nine stories above Haverford Street in the rear. Carriages couldn’t turn around in the yard and had to pass through and exit via a ramp in the rear. It was built by Chicago architect Charles Kaestner who cleverly fools the eye with arches designed to make the building look symmetrical, when in fact it is unbalanced. They produced 40,000 barrels of ale per year, including the XXX (Triple X) Ale and Stock labels. After 1918 it became Larkin and Sons Storage Warehouse, and it’s now an Extra Space Storage facility."

I originally submitted this with the incorrect picture, but please feel free to use the picture below of the full building.  Thanks!

Thanks for letting us have another look at this one. We have reversed our decision, and the Franklin Brewing Company Portal is now online. Happy Hacking!
