On Thursday, June 2, 2011, a ribbon-cutting ceremony was held to open the Boston Harbor Islands Pavilion on the Rose F. Kennedy Greenway in the Wharf District parks. The pavilion will serve as a gateway to the Boston Harbor Islands national park area and the ferry terminal at Long Wharf.
The video above highlights the ribbon-cutting and speeches by Vicki Kennedy and Tom Powers, President of the Boston Harbor Island Alliance. Also attending the ceremony were Boston Mayor Thomas Menino, MassDOT Secretary Jeff Mullan, BRA Director Peter Meade, State Rep. Aaron Michlewitz, Harbor Island Alliance Board Chair Douglas McGarrah, National Park Service Superintendent Bruce Jacobson and Audrey O’Hagan, President of the Boston Society of Architects who presented the BSA Commonwealth Award to the Boston Harbor Island Alliance. Boston.com Town Correspondent, Jeremy Fox, writes more about the ceremony here.

I enjoyed the video re Boston Harbor Islands and plan to visit them on my next trip.
And *where* are the rest rooms??? What a wasted opportunity to have public restrooms convenient to the Greenway, the Waterfront, & downtown Boston in general. *No* world-class city builds a public amenity like a gift shop, ticket kiosk, way-finding station without including public restrooms. Ridiculous.
I fought throughout the Big Dig project for public restrooms in the House of Pollution @ Parcel 7 ground floor. *don't* allow the Public Market to shirk this neighborhood need, tourism amenity.
