No immediate word on just what they were doing in the tail end of Fort Point Channel shortly after 11 a.m., but Boston firefighters got them a ladder, they climbed out and now they're under the care of Boston EMS.
I've never heard of this bridge, and Google isn't especially helpful.
It's the bridge connecting Broadway and Traveler St in Southie/ the South End. It's named after a white supremacist and truly terrible human being.
Connecting Southie to the "mainland" of Boston. It used to be said of the occasional South Boston resident, "He (or she) has never been over the Broadway Bridge", meaning that person was such a provincial resident of South Boston he (or she) lived an entire life without ever leaving Southie for ANYTHING.
Why would someone have left Southie when they could get their smokes at Tedeschi's and their green sweatpants at Family Dollar?
Smokes are cheaper at Family Dollar.
It's the former new Broadway Bridge that was renamed James Kelly bridge after long time Boston City Council member who passed away several years ago. It is the bridge that links the South End to South Boston and connects from South Boston to the on ramps for the Mass Pike and 93 Northbound. and South Station ramps.
A lot of drug addicts and homeless live under and around that bridge
Regardless of whose name they put on it.
and the location is popular for the homeless and drinking.
Where do you think the homeless were going to move to when they were evicted from their tent city under the highway. The state put up a parking lot and kicked out these lost souls and they now live on railroad property.
