Long Description:
From the MAGS/MHD description:

"In the east sidewalk of Dorchester Avenue, 7.13 feet southeast of e-pin in granite curb, 4.04 feet west of e-pin on wall, 7.31 feet northeast of e-pin in granite curb."

I will add that the mark is pretty much smack dab in the middle of the sidewalk, along Dorchester Ave, just north of the Broadway T station and of 2nd Street.
