East Boston Greenway Connector Professional Reviews and Guides
"The East Boston Greenway makes for a quick getaway to the seaside along its paved rail-trail path. After rolling through Bremen Street Park’s urban wild, you’ll take in the serene and secluded landscape of Belle Isle Marsh. The coastline will then take you through Winthrop and around Deer Island for scenic views of Boston from across the harbor. The last leg of the return ride brings you to Constitution Beach, one of the best vantage points for watching planes coming into Logan Airport across the water."
--Shawn Musgrave, Best Bike Rides Boston (Falcon Guides).
"Once the home of shipbuilders, merchants, and a cattle ranch, East Boston is now a wonderfully vibrant multiethnic community. (It’s also the site of Boston’s Logan International Airport.)
This area saw difficult times in the 1980s and ’90s, but recently it has received significant interest and investment. This walk circles East Boston’s Maverick Square, sampling the best of the neighborhood, from an eco-oriented affordable-housing project to a lovely waterfront park on a reclaimed pier."
--Robert Todd Felton, Walking Boston (Wilderness Press).
