Tuesday’s Brief: Wharf Name Mystery Solved, ZLC meeting, Evening with Karma Kitaj

Things to know for Tuesday

Today is Tuesday, September 25 and in less than one day, our question from yesterday’s brief has been answered! As the city is finalizing the North End wharf names on the map no one seemed to know the names of three wharves, but when we opened it up to the North End community, the answer in just several hours! 

Local history expert, Jessica Dello Russo, found an old map that contained the three wharf names (North Pier, South Pier and Winnisimmet Company Pier) from 1917, see the map here
