Boston's Rose Kennedy Greenway Gets Financial Boost

The Kennedy family have taken the lead in ensuring that the "crown jewel of the big dig project," which is named for the late Rose Fitzgerald Kennedy, is well funded for the future.

"The Kennedy family Monday pledged $1 million to the corridor of parks above the Big Dig, ensuring an additional $5 million from the Massachusetts Turnpike Authority for the "greenway" where the old elevated Central Artery once cast its shadow... The greenway is designed to be a series of parks and cultural spots running between Causeway and Kneeland streets."
