CLF’s annual Pitch a Blanket event shows how much people around Boston care about protecting public access to the waterfront. They also give people the chance to express their shared frustration about privatization of waterfront spaces and poor public access. This combination of factors has made the waterfront feel unwelcoming to many but the wealthy.
Public space is about people feeling welcome to use it. CLFs Pitch A Blanket event was a reminder that meaningful public access to the water – not just token spaces – are essential for the city to come to life.
