Boston Harbor Island
The city of Boston has begun demolition of a structurally deficient bridge that led to a homeless shelter on a Boston Harbor island.
City officials are scrambling to make sure the homeless population in Boston is taken care of after a much needed shelter on Long Island was closed.
A 35-year-old man died after falling from an elevator shaft on Peddocks Island Friday night.
A dead 50-foot finback whale first spotted floating in Boston Harbor more than two weeks ago has beached more than 30 miles to the north in Rockport, where town officials are trying to figure out what to do with it.
The dead whale spotted near Deer Island on Sunday, washed up on the shores of Rainsford Island Tuesday afternoon.
