Save Long Wharf Park!
Long Wharf Park, at the seaward end of historic Long Wharf in Boston Harbor, is under threat. Since 2006, the Boston Redevelopment Authority has been trying to lease the space to a private operator who will build a late-night restaurant and bar. Since 2008, the North End Ten have been fighting this change as unconstitutional: The Massachusetts Constitution requires a two-thirds vote of both houses of the legislature before public parkland can be converted to other uses. This vote, and the public debate it would require, has never happened. Now the case is before the Massachusetts Supreme Judicial Court.
