Early in BRA Navy Yard stewardship, a mural hung at the BRA entrance “Greenway Crossroads” proudly presented the future public green space at Piers 4, 5, 6. The Boston Naval Yard is a Special Place for the Public.
How did the BRA stray so far from that original vision? Now proposing the privatizing of a valuable public amenity and removing it from the public realm? Why are private condominiums for a few now proposed for a harbor site that calls for the Public’s Enjoyment and Use of the Harbor?
