    Looking from 4th Street towards E. Berkeley

The starting point for The Fence is along the edge of the SoWa Open Market. The Fence stops and we jump across Albany Street and picks up under the highway. The Fence will most then play along that entire Plaza area.

The container location (Channel Park) is on the upper right immediately to the right of the highway north of the W 4th Street Bridge and the Broadway Bridge, where it says S. Bay Harbor Trail.

Guide to Boston
From out of town? Here are some things to see and do while in Boston.

Faneuil Hall Marketplace

Boston. It’s the seat of American History and the site of one of Americas most famous shopping and dining experiences — Faneuil Hall Marketplace. For over 250 years, the marketplace has played an integral role in the life of Boston’s residents. So if you are ready to see, taste and touch a true Boston experience, come to this historic and exciting place.

Massachusetts State House

Built in 1798, the “new” State House is located across from the Boston Common on the top of Beacon Hill. The land was once owned by Massachusetts first elected governor, John Hancock.

Old South Meeting House

The Old South Meeting House is best known as the site of where the Boston Tea Party began. In the winter of 1773, more than 5,000 colonists gathered at Old South in a meeting to protest the tax on tea. After many hours of debate, Samuel Adams announced, “This meeting can do nothing more to save the country!” Protestors stormed out of the Old South Meeting House to the waterfront where they dumped three shiploads of tea into Boston Harbor. They changed American history forever.

Old State House

The Old State House was the center of all political life and debate in colonial Boston. On July 18, 1776, citizens gathered in the street to hear the Declaration of Independence read from the building’s balcony, the first public reading in Massachusetts. The Royal Governor presided here until the new State House was built on Beacon Hill in 1798.

Boston Massacre Site

At this site, tensions between the colonists and British soldiers erupted into violence on March 5, 1770.

Paul Revere’s House

Built around 1680, this house is the oldest building in downtown Boston. It served as the home of silversmith Paul Revere and his family from 1770 to 1800. Paul Revere is famous for his “midnight ride” to Lexington, Massachusetts informing Samuel Adams and John Hancock that the British were coming to arrest them.

Old North Church

Known as “Christ Church in the City of Boston”, this Episcopal church was built in 1723 and is Boston’s oldest Church building”. On the steeple of this church, Robert Newman signaled with lanterns the approach of the British regulars; “One if by land, and two, if by sea.”

USS Constitution & Charlestown Navy Yard

The USS Constitution is the oldest commissioned warship afloat in the world. It was first launched in 1797.

Bunker Hill Monument

The Bunker Hill Monument stands 221 feet tall at Breed’s Hill, the site of the first major battle of the American Revolution fought on June 17, 1775. Control of this high ground near the harbor was important to the British occupation of Boston. When colonial forces chose to fortify Charlestown, they bypassed the more dominant “Bunker Hill” and dug in on Breed’s Hill which was lower and closer to the water.

Museum of Science

Boston’s museums are as good as any you’ll find in the world, and the most visited one is the Museum of Science at Science Park. It has more than 400 interactive exhibits including a Virtual Fish Tank, an IMAX theater and a planetarium.

It is lined with windows so you can take a glance into its depths. The Aquarium has over 50 species of sea creatures and even has an IMAX theater.

Boston Common

The oldest public park in the history of the USA, Boston Common‘s history goes back as far as 1634, when the area was designated a common pasture. It was also used for military purposes and for public hangings. The gallows were removed in 1817 and from 1830 on the grazing of cattle was forbidden. Ever since, the Boston common mainly serves as a public park for recreational purposes.

Boston Harbor Islands National Park

Is a wonderful place where you can walk a Civil War-era fort, visit historic lighthouses, explore tide pools, hike lush trails, camp under the stars, or relax while fishing, picnicking or swimming—all within reach of downtown Boston.

Boston Public Garden

Fenway Park

If there’s one thing you can say about Boston it’s that it’s a town that appreciates baseball. Bostonians’ love of the Red Sox is only rivaled by their hatred of the Yankees. And there is one place in the city that has captured the imagination of Boston’s baseball fans for more than 90 years—Fenway Park. Fenway is an old ballpark, a classic. It looks today very much like it did when it opened on April 20, 1912. It is full of history, echoing with the memory of baseball legends like Babe Ruth, Cy Young, and Ted Williams, and when you watch a game at Fenway you feel that you are a part of baseball history.

The structures are grouped around a cobblestone promenade where jugglers, magicians, mimes and bands continually entertain a constant influx of passersby. Great fun for the whole family!

Newbury Street

Newbury Street develops its own very distinctive and appealing character and becomes one of the nicest shopping streets in Boston, or anywhere. Renovated town houses with large glass bays on the ground floor produce a delightful urban landscape… Owners and tenants… have further animated the street by using the 25-foot (7.6 m) space between the building and the sidewalk for various purposes. Some areas are paved and used for displays or sidewalk sales. Others have thick planting… Some lots have stairs up and down to shops and galleries; others have show windows and display cases for flowers or fashions or other items for sale. But each contributes something extra, and together they make these blocks of Newbury Street genuinely attractive.
