Our project sought to assist The Boston Harbor Association in the completion of the Boston Harborwalk. This process included creating an inventory of the completion and state of maintenance of the Boston Harborwalk and evaluating the impact of having a mandated public walkway on private land. By comparing our data to the data from U.S. Census Bureau, we concluded that there might be indications of environmental injustice in the policy of implementing the Boston Harborwalk. Using these conclusions, we provided The Boston Harbor Association recommendations to help expedite the completion of the Boston Harborwalk.
