BOSTON (CBS) — There’s a new piece of art in Boston’s South end and it recognizes the city’s unique connection to the water.

The LandWave sculpture was commissioner as part of the Neck Art Project. It’s location on Washington Street marks the spot that was known as the “neck” many years ago. It’s a narrow stretch of land that used to connect downtown Boston to the rest of the state.
