Bostonians have always had a love-hate relationship with Boston Harbor and the waterfront. We alternately embrace it and shun it; thrive on its wealth and beauty and then pollute and isolate it. But the bond remains. Over the past thirty years we’ve started to better appreciate the treasure in our backyard. The wharves are being reborn to lure people back, along with the allure of the aquarium, restaurants, housing, and hotels. The Harbor Islands, forgotten treasures, have been rediscovered. In the past ten years pollution has been cut to a fraction of its former levels. And of course the Central Artery is being replaced with parkland, reknitting the city and the waterfront. On this Harborwalk you will experience both the old and the new—not only in the sights you’ll see but also in the sounds of the city blended with seabirds’ cries and the smell of the ocean.
