Boston Harbor Pilots Navigate Change

The home of one of Boston Harbor's oldest businesses is scheduled for demolition today. The Boston Pilots Association has been around for a century or so, headquartered in east Boston since the 1970s. Now the pilots have to relocate for a few years, while their building is razed then ultimately replaced with a new complex that will include, not just the pilots but also luxury condos, restaurants and stores.

The temporary move is part of a push to develop Boston's waterfront. Here's WBUR's Nina Mitchell with more on the harbor pilots' story.
