Did you feel that? 32° in 45 minutes
According to a makeshift weather station cobbled together in the minutes leading up to the storm, the temperature in the North End dropped 32° in just 45 minutes Friday afternoon. That coincided with a 52% increase in humidity.
July 2022 NEWNC meeting recording
NEWNC held its monthly meeting Monday, July 11th.
North Meadow Greenway Park completed
The park at Parcel 2 (dubbed "North Meadow") is now complete!
I swung by this afternoon to check it out. Other than the fact that it took me 3 minutes and 32 seconds to reach the park from the bus stop across the street on North Washington, and the exhaust and noise from traffic... the park was lovely! The flowers, seating, and signage all seemed well thought out and designed. (Especially the flowers - they really are lovely🌺)
New public dock coming to Burroughs Wharf
We noticed that the public dock at Burroughs Wharf has been barricaded with plywood and a makeshift sign reading "DO NOT DOCK ANY BOATS DOCK IS DANGEROUS" had been affixed to the gangway.
