How extraordinary it is to work and live in Boston today, thanks to our Mayor, Tom Menino. Think about the fact that during the Mayor’s tenure, all the landfills in Boston have been capped and turned into parks: Pope John Paul II Park on the former Hallet St. landfill; Spectacle Island now transformed into a hub of the Boston Harbor Islands; and the Gardner St. landfill which many of you probably only know as the City’s Millennium Park.
TBHA is proud to kick off this year’s Winter on the Waterfront campaign. With the holidays right around the corner, it’s a great time to be a part of Boston’s waterfront community! We’ve got a big meeting today at the Boston Harbor Hotel with our 30+ community partners and we are very excited about what’s to come!

The Port of Boston, New England’s largest port handling more than 20 million tons of cargo annually, is facing global and local challenges.
On February 5, 2013, TBHA was honored to participate in a joint press conference in which Mayor Thomas M. Menino announced the City's plans to better prepare Boston for the next Superstorm Sandy and future higher sea levels.

Fall is still an amazing time to spend on the waterfront, but what’s there to do after Columbus Day? So much! Not only is it a great time to spend outdoors on the harborwalk and in the parks, but there is also still time to get on the water!
It’s DongHwa! Hope you are enjoying this chilly season. I have something to tell you. Just be prepared to hear something I have long avoided saying. I'm leaving.
