Citizen complaint of the day: Broken heart in East Boston

Broken heart

An alert citizen reports the Pulse of the City heart installation outside the East Boston Health Center in Maverick Square is already broken, only four days after it was installed.

The heart, which emitted music based on the pulse of whoever held its handles, was a twin to the heart stolen from Christopher Columbus Park in the North End.

    As well intended as these items might be, they clearly are an obvious target for theft and vandalism. No one should be surprised by this.

    They aren't out yet

    And when they are, they will be in public, but not isolated locations for a brief time only.

    Yep

    Yes, that one was gone by Saturday, lasting less than 24 hours in place. That's why Adam referred to "the heart stolen from Christopher Columbus Park in the North End" in his story.
