New parking lot
Have you noticed a fence going up around the vacant lot on Derby Street across from the Salem Wax Museum?
If you can’t place it, this is the empty lot where Fiesta Shows puts its carnival rides every Halloween.
Well, the Peabody Essex Museum has signed a lease for the land and plans to use it for parking for construction workers. The lease only goes through the rest of the year, but the PEM may extend it into future years.
The current $200 million expansion won’t be done until 2017.
Did you catch the reality TV show “Wife Swap” last week?
We didn’t either, but we heard it involved a pagan family from Salem and the Los Angeles-based parents of a tap-dancing prodigy.
No, we’re not making that up.
