    Summer is the perfect time to explore the Fort Point Channel neighborhood, a bustling area that's home to museums, artists' studios, restaurants and lofts. Once the center of the world's wool industry, it's also the birthplace of the safety razor and Valentine's Day candy hearts! Learn about the remarkable landfill projects that created the neighborhood as you consider the gritty streetscapes that inspired painter Charles Sheeler, photographer Walker Evans, and director Martin Scorsese, whose 2007 Oscar winner, The Departed, was shot on these very streets. We'll meet in front of South Station, at the corner of Atlantic and Summer Streets. *Please read: All Tours are non-refundable. Tour meets in front of South Station- Atlantic and Summer Street corner. Rain or shine.
