Site: Boston (Massachusetts, USA)
Description
View of the walkway which ends at Cross Street in the North End.
Additional Information: The North End Parks are built on three acres of new land on the I-93 "Big Dig" tunnel roof, at the prime entry to downtown Boston's densest neighborhood. The Parks are designed as a system of varied spaces that serve the residential neighborhood, while forming together as one, a unified threshold piece at a larger civic scale. Aside from the pergola, there is a shallow water fountain with vertical jets (referencing a canal that once ran through this spot) as well as granite curbing which marks the mill pond/weir line, from when Salem Street effectively followed the shoreline and merged into the Hanover Street Bridge to bring people over the mill canal into the downtown mainland.
