North Shirtwaist Station?

I tried to exit North Station this morning and found two of the doors padlocked from the outside.  Not that it would have mattered if they were padlocked from the inside.

North Station Exit, padlocked

Vandalism or overzealous security, it's hard to say.  7:30 is not exactly the wee hours of the morning for commuting.  In the rare (ok, not so rare on the MBTA sometimes) event of a fire or emergency, reducing the exist capacity by half seems a pretty bad idea. Maybe an alert reader with some clippers can pop over before rush hour hits in earnest.

  1. Well, whatever that was all about, it was still chained up at 5 this evening. Go figure.
  2. And whatever that was it was finished by 8 this morning and egress was again unfettered.
