Wednesday’s News & Views: Cooper St. Fire, Less Rats, More Trash and Arguing Long Wharf


What’s Going On Today:

Many in the neighborhood are recovering from last night’s fire on Cooper St., (or the Madonna concert), but there are several events in the neighborhood today. NEMPAC continues its Open House series this week and it’s Farmer’s Market day at City Hall Plaza. The Paul Revere House is sponsoring a lecture series and the first one is tonight at the Old South Meeting House.

Live in or around Commercial Wharf? You might want to listen in to the hearing tonight at City Hall regarding Yacht Haven and the Harborwalk there. See the agenda. If sitting in meetings isn’t your thing, try Ultimate Bootcamp on the Greenway.

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