The history of the Boston Harbor islands has always been something that I have been interested in. Learning about how the Boston harbor islands were used for people's trash throughout the early and mid-1900s is so interesting. The harbor was so dirty people who worked on these islands had to get a shot to even be cleared to work on the Boston Harbor. It took the entire city of Boston to stop this. The people of Boston sued the city for how dirty the harbor was during that time. One of the most interesting things I learned from this was that it took 10 years to burn all the trash on Spectacle Island. Lastly, I will always remember this quote from David, "you can be a burning pile of trash for 10 years and you can still be able to turn your life around."
See Ya At The Harbor!
