(Photos by R_ dcr Farrtngtola1 In anticipation of over one million spectators along Bos- ton's waterfront, the City's Police and Transportation De- partments, along with the Coast Guard, Massport, MBTA, and representatives from Sail Bos- ton, recently completed a series of public briefings in those com- munities that will experience the greatest influx of attendees to watch the Parade of Sail. To ensure everyone's safety and maximize enjoyment of this stunning spectacle, a number of measures will be implemented, mostly on Parade of Sail day only, to limit vehicular access as well as performing stadium style screenings. These security protocols are very similar to those employed in recent years by the organiz- ers of the Boston Pops July 44 celebration on the Esplanade, as wellas the Boston Marathon from Kenmore Square to the finish line in Copley Square. Measures include street clos~ ings, restricted vehicular access and parking, and screening entry points along the Boston waterfront from Castle Island in South Boston, to Charlestown Navy Yard, and in East Boston as well. Several items will not be allowed past screening points in the viewing areas along the District; in the North End/ Waterfront along Atlantic Ave. and Commercial St.; Charles- town Navy Yard and adjacent residential streets; andin East Boston from LoPresti Park on Summer Street to the Navy Fuel Pier on Marginal Street.
