Hello, I'm Crystal Aiken, the new Climate Change Fellow. In early April I joined The Boston Harbor Association as the Climate Change Fellow as part of my year-long AmeriCorps fellowship through New Sector Alliance.
Hi! I am DongHwa, professional swimmer in the wave of Old Boston’s photo collection. As our sneak preview recently showed you, (http://tbha.org/blog/julie-wormser/sneak-preview-historical-waterfront-photos-donghwa) we are launching a smartphone app that lets you to see yourself in the past. We have been uploading dozens of photos with the generous help from the Boston National Historic Park, The Bostonian Society, Boston Public Library, The Bostonian Society and many others.
Since I first watched Cinderella, I have coveted an invitation to a ball. Not a mere dance, party, or soirée (although I suppose I could pencil a soirée in, now and then.) Galas can be fussy affairs, and I don’t exactly have a stockpile of taffeta and satin at my disposal.
Explore East Boston on the next stop in our journey through the neighborhoods along Boston Harbor!
The North End, affectionately referred to as "Little Italy" here in Boston, is a one-square-mile neighborhood bordered by Commercial and Causeway Streets and Atlantic Avenue. The cultural heritage and authentic atmosphere preserved in the neighborhood’s narrow, cobbled roads has made the place a tourist hot spot.
I'm sure everyone's a little weary of hearing about New Year's Resolutions. Regardless of your plans, however, it never hurts to discover new, fun ways to get and stay in shape. I’m bringing you a few ideas for fitness on the waterfront, but no matter where you are, there are plenty of benefits to busting out the spandex and sneakers. (Alright…you have to go a few steps further than just putting them on…)
Water makes us who we are. As individuals, roughly 60% of our bodies are made of water. We swim, we drink, we dance in the rain. Collectively, humans have formed communities around lakes, rivers, and oceans throughout history, and our continued existence depends upon the availability of clean, safe water. At The Boston Harbor Association, we seek to protect the water that has not only provided us with endless opportunities for commerce and recreation, but also has shaped our identity as a city.
This Saturday, September 22, HarborArts is having a daylong party, filled with food, fun, and art. Yes, sure, we all love parties, especially ones that last all day, but why should we be particularly interested in this particular event? Two years ago, the HarborArts organization launched the first outdoor public art exhibition at the Boston Shipyard and Marina on Marginal Street in East Boston. The exhibition features 30 pieces of public art that are both lovely to look at and important to think about.

Last Wednesday, we got the opportunity to go on the Codzilla boat ride, one of the many trips offered by Boston Harbor Cruises (BHC). It’s known as the fastest and wildest way to tour the harbor, so we were thrilled! The day was a bit cloudy and clouds were darkening overhead, but we stood in line anyway and waited patiently to get on the boat.
The boat was charismatic and engaged the visitors of the boat wonderfully!

On a hot summer’s day, Kate, Carly and I made the trek from TBHA’s offices (off Congress Street in Fort Point Channel) to the Harpoon Brewery (306 Northern Avenue) in the Seaport District. The day was blisteringly hot, but the promise of a deliciously refreshing brew in the middle of the day kept our spirits high.
