An East Boston resident reports strolling by the now infamous locked East Boston Harborwalk gate at Jeffries Point today with the two tykelings when the older one started fiddling with the lock:
Margaret was looking at the latch and tried pulling the pin up and out it came. There was no keyed lock like a Masterlock running through the pin. Only the pin was keeping it closed. All open now, we swung the gate over to the other post that can keep it open.
And as Margaret was single-handedly re-opening the gate near Porzio Park, who should happen by but the guy who filed the original 311 complaint about the gate being locked in the first place.
He was riding his bike and came over to us to talk about it. He’s been in Eastie for 15 years, is, rightfully, concerned about ADA accessible sidewalks in Eastie, and was on his way to the Jeffries Point Yacht Club.
