How Boston plans to create a bustling nightlife in the city

Download Audio

Boston is known for a lot of things, but life at night is not one of them. City officials are looking to change that by following the lead of countless other communities in hiring a night mayor.

In a series called "After Dark: Boston at Night" we take a look at what it means to have a night mayor, and what it could mean for a city in transition with Segun Idowu, Boston's chief of economic opportunity and inclusion, and Allison Harnden, nighttime economy manager with the City of Pittsburgh's Office of Nighttime Economy.

This segment aired on November 15, 2022.
