It’s probably safe to say there wasn’t a summer Bostonians wanted more than this one after the record-breaking winter none of us will soon forget. Despite the unofficial end of summer earlier this week though, the warm temperatures don’t seem to be letting up. In fact, we just experienced our first September heat wave in more than 30 years. Unfortunately, we know cooler temps are around the corner. But before they come,… Read More
The City of Boston is known for a lot of firsts: the first telephone, the first public park, the first city police station – the list goes on and on. But did you know that in 1929 Arthur Fiedler organized the first series of free concerts on the DCR Esplanade?
