Program Number


Series Description

Series of programs intended to highlight communities in the Greater Boston Area as well as to encourage local citizens to become more involved with community activities. Series release date: 1969

Program Description

Once a close knit community, East Boston is experiencing a change. Between the development and expansion of Logan Airport and the continued truck traffic for Massport, the neighborhood is seeing its residents leave. Michael Ambrosino explores the community through interviews with women protesting for a safe place for their children, the parish priest commenting on the decline of the community and an interview with the head of the East Boston “Little City Hall”, a trailer designed to take care of problems and paperwork people would have to travel into the city to deal with otherwise.
