Wednesday News & Views: $$$ for North End Historical Sites, Another Greenway Article and a Bridges Photo


What’s Going On Wednesday, September 19, 2012:

How did you like that wind?

Wednesday morning won’t be much better, so the Labyrinth Walk at the Armenian Heritage Park has been rained out.

Still on is the Farmer’s Market and Retail Trucks at City Hall Plaza from 11am-7pm.

Into urban renewal history? The West End Museum is having a walking tour at 6:30 pm.

Also at 6:30pm, the North End Branch Library presents “Bay State Phantoms” with a New England folklorist.

The Events Calendar has all the details. Please check with organizers for last minute changes.

What’s new on the blog:

It was “big checks” all around at Copp’s Hill Burying Ground where Old North and the historic burial ground received grants from the Freedom Trail Foundation. See the photos.

Notable News Found Elsewhere:

“Greenway Tells Groups: Show us the money!” was the Herald headline yesterday. We called it “Pay to Play” here.


Tired of endless fundraising galas? Me too. The Friends of Christopher Columbus Park are shuffling it up and rolling the dice by having a Casino Night instead! Get your tickets now.

Neighborhood Photo of the Day:

You may remember the blog post about the new pedestrian bridge under the Zakim to Cambridge. A photographer friend, Al Merrill, captures this shot of the new structure at night with a cool contrast of light and dark. You can see more of Al’s work on Flickr.
