Boston Winter Announcement
Today, the City of Boston announced significant progress and next steps for Rethink City Hall: Boston City Hall and Plaza Study. Due to these plans, Boston Winter will not return for the 2018/19 season. While we will miss the opportunity to bring Boston Winter back for its third iteration, we are supportive of the City’s plans and Mayor’s Walsh’s long-term vision for this unique space. READ MORE
Faneuil Hall overlook area of City Hall Plaza has transformed into a destination for Wachusett’s Boston Brew Yard and more!
The Patios is open to the public and serves as a local gathering spot with nine custom patio areas, a main pavilion structure, Wachusett Brew Yard, Honeycomb Creamery, and mini-golf stations. Weekly ‘pop-ups’ at the Patios include visits from puppies in partnership with Shultz’s Guest House, the mobile book program from Boston Public Library and picnic promotions from Boston Public Market.
Sculptor Jeff Smith is a sculptor and filmmaker who built the ‘Smallest House in the World’ in the World and is now on a mission to popularize the perfect shape. He has created sculpture using salvaged material for 30 years, way before it was cool. Smith lives in Boston with his wife and two children.
“The Patios project is a flexible public space that brings a scale of intimacy to a place famously the opposite.” – Jeff Smith
