Things to know for Thursday
It’s Thursday, February 8 and by now I’m sure you’ve all heard about, or at least seen with your own eyes the new buildings popping up left and right all over the city. Not only are these new sky scrapers housing various offices and residents, but these projects include hotels too. Curbed Boston has mapped out the 8 most anticipated ones as of this month.
As you may already know, NorthEndWaterfront.com is here to keep you informed and involved in our historic neighborhood, and to share your thoughts and insider knowledge as residents and community members. If you have something to share, all you need do is say and we’ll do our best to make sure the community is aware.
Here’s what else you need to know for Thursday…
12:30PM Let me tell you a story at West End Library. Join the West End Library at 151 Cambridge Street for adult story time on the second Thursday of each month. Brig your lunch and come enjoy a story or two.
Earlier this week, a barge worker fell into freezing cold waters underneath the North Washington Street Bridge where he was quickly rescued by fellow crew members. The worker fell off of the tubboat Virginia and was in the water for less and a minute before being rescued and further evaluated and cleared at a local hospital, Boston Globe has the full story.
