Rowes Wharf

Staden Boston har länge haft nära band till vattnet, och en av de moderna utvecklingen längs vattnet är Rowes Wharf, byggd på ett historiskt batteri.

Rowes Wharf byggdes 1987, och de mest synliga delarna av utvecklingen är det massiva Boston Harbor Hotel och den välvtäckta gången genom hotellet som matar in på Boston Harbor. Det finns restauranger, barer och butiker, och under sommaren är en flytande scen precis utanför stranden inrättad för konserter och filmer. Bryggan är också ett nav för vattentransport, inklusive vattentaxi till och från Logan flygplats.

Den första konstruktionen i detta område var på 1660-talet när South Battery byggdes för att skydda staden. John Rowe köpte fastigheten lite mer än 100 år senare och byggde den första Rowes Wharf. Vid 1900-talet var kajen tillräckligt nedslagen för att den krävde en större översyn.
