Boston Harbor hums all year long.
There are fewer sunset cruises this time of year, but the port remains active through all seasons and is especially critical in winter. The salt on our roads and fuel in our homes, cars, and planes arrive thanks to ship captains, their crews, and our own Mass Pilots Association. The sofa you sit on or the glass of wine you might sip tonight with dinner may have come in via Conley Terminal, thanks to Massport and the Longshoremen. We’ve featured the port below in our 3rd episode of the new Waterfront Wednesdays VLOG series, a set of recommendations for the future port, an op-ed, and an upcoming Harbor Use Public Forum.
Winter programming along the Harborwalk and on the Islands continues to draw crowds. We hope you’ll join us for s’mores on Peddocks or to learn more about the Harbor’s role in the Underground Railroad. We’re grateful to have state and federal Park Rangers partnering with us on these adventures and more.
So get off your couch and come love your harbor! It’s beautiful in all seasons, not just a pretty place on a fine summer day.
Warmly (pun intended),
Katherine F. Abbott
