Abstract

Boston is a city of water, built on a field artificially created with landfill operations, which have buried ponds and coastal marshes, widening the originary area from 3 sq km to the current 125. Among the projects aimed at preserving the usability of the waterfront, lapped and erosed by the ocean, is the 43 miles linear path known as Harborwalk. It is expected to underline how the answers to challenges as the water issue and urban cohesion, come from overall assessments of the administration that find in the Harborwalk a synthetic one event for the city’s health and citizens’ involvement.
