Some would argue its Thanksgiving, others would say it’s Christmas. There is no wrong answer when debating what the best day of the year is. However if you ask a resident of Massachusetts they might have an outside-the-box answer, Patriot’s Day.

Known around the Commonwealth as simply “Marathon Monday”, Patriot’s Day is a celebration of the opening battle of the American Revolution that took place at the Battle of Lexington and Concord. Since 1897, the famed Boston Marathon has been run on Patriots Day each year. Tens of thousands of runners embark on the 26.2 miles journey from Hopkinton to Copley Square, and millions more line the streets and take to the bars along the way. The spirit has never been stronger on this day. With the tragic events of the Boston Marathon in 2013, the importance and legacy of the Marathon have only grown.

This year’s event shall not be outdone. Weather is expected to be mostly sunny with a small chance of showers later in the afternoon, but that shouldn’t dampen spirits. We wanted to include a background guide to the race, with a mile-by-mile analysis. Click here to read CBS Boston’s official guide to the Marathon.

Whether you’re cheering on the thousands of brave athletes from around the world, or enjoying the festivities from your favorite restaurant patio or deck, it should be a day that all should enjoy! #BostonStrong

Thanking the Fabulous Maintenance Men here at SouthField!


Only two days remain in what has been one of the most stressful, difficult, and challenging months we’ve ever seen when it comes to dealing with Mother Nature. The total winter snow accumulation has passed the 100” threshold, something that has only been seen once before in recorded history! From the rural towns outside of 495 to the “parking war-zone” on the streets of South Boston, we’ve all been affected by the snow’s overwhelming reach. At Corcoran communities all throughout Massachusetts, Rhode Island, New York, and New Hampshire, dedicated maintenance staff members have been busy around the clock dealing with insane amounts of snow, ice dams, dangerous black ice, and walkway clearing. Whether it’s a small community of 60 apartments, or a larger community with over 500 residences, it takes around-the-clock hard work and dedication to clear out the amounts of snow that we have seen in the last month.

South Weymouth was one of the hardest hit communities in all of Eastern Massachusetts. Seemingly each week throughout February we received around 18 inches. This can be a challenge to anyone who has to shovel their driveway or clear their walkway. It’s an added challenge for our maintenance staff. That’s why we are lucky to have Rick and Eric here on staff, all of their hard work made sure that all roadways, walkways, and resident parking spots were cleared out!
