Hi Susan,

It appears you have mailed your response to MuckRock's address, which is incorrect. My address is:

Boston Magazine
300 Massachusetts Avenue
Boston, MA 02115

However, I am uncertain why your response to this request and another I filed on October 27 has been mailed to MuckRock's offices, when the MBTA has fulfilled requests electronically on the MuckRock platform dating back to 2010, and as recently as October 31.
