    New to the Neighborhood

    A new Soofa sign was recently installed on Pilgrim Road, adjacent to the garage at 375 Longwood Avenue.

    The Soofa sign will provide real-time information through a digital display board, including local events, nearby transit options, wayfinding, and current weather forecasts, as examples.

    This project supports Longwood Collective's Smart City initiative, which aims to harness technology, data, and innovation to streamline and strengthen services available to the institutions in Longwood and to the neighborhood. Read more about our Smart City work here.
