The Garden and Zakim From The Harborwalk
Although the Harborwalk STILL isn’t completed, where it connects to N. Washington Street, it’s very close. This view, at the foot of the stairs leading up to Washington, shows the TD Garden (Boston Garden) and the Zakim Bridge as you view down the Harborwalk and the shops at Lovejoy Wharf.
This area has been very rough, to say the least, practially since the Big Dig was completed. Actually, you couldn’t even get from one side to the other, for a while. It kind of looked like an aircraft has crashed into it, and it stayed that way for years and years. However, it seems they’ve really done it up right, finally. This is a very nice and peaceful place to shop and sit out at the tables during spring, fall and summer. It’s also a terrific shortcut from North Washington to North Beverly if you’re coming from the bridge, perhepas headed to the Garden or the Commuter Rail.
