News & Views: Dirty Old Boston, TV Shoot in North Square and Lightwaves

Neighborhood Photo of the Day:

I’ve been enjoying the very active Facebook page, Dirty Old Boston, showing the Boston area before the gentrification era. In a blast from the 1980s, this photo is from Chris Zappala where the entrance to a tunnel under I-93 connected the North End to Haymarket.
