North End Landmark designation possible
Boston Mayor Martin Walsh, Representative Aaron Michlewitz and City Counselor Lydia Edwards joined about 50 North End residence at City Hall in support of designating landmark status for the exterior of the Bath House (Nazzaro Center) and Polcari Playground.
The over 100-year-old structure new status, if designated, would not affect the interior of the City-owned building.
The Landmarks Commission has taken the request under consideration and will complete a study before it is sent to the Mayor for his signature which is expected.
Like Starbuck and the Nursing Home when the neighborhood joins forces things get accomplished.
