Placemaking: The Northern Avenue Bridge restored gives Bostonians and its visitors a place to play in the Atlantic Ocean. The bridge intersects: Innovation and Financial Districts, water and land transportation systems, The Greenway and The Harbor Walk public parks. 
Re-activating the bridge tender’s house and the former five-story fireboat house with its former long dock makes the swinging bridge a destination – Boston’s version of The High Line. These structures and the bridges sidewalks, bike and rapid bus lanes will make The Northern Avenue Bridge the place to go – to be – to put in.
