Looking Out: A Summer On The Harbor

This article is more than 9 years old.

This summer, WBUR took to the seas — Boston Harbor's seas, we mean. We found a cleaned-up, remade harbor, alive with art, sport and history. We fished for stripers, followed artists and inquired about the ghosts of the harbor's past. We trawled for lobsters, tried (and failed) to swim the Charles — but broke a long-distance swimming record in the harbor's waters.

As August draws to a close, we take one last look at our summer on the harbor.
