Memorial Boulevard

Looking down Custom House Street you can see an
enormous dome on top of the custom house. The very
top of the dome is enclosed in glass which enabled customs
agents to watch over the entire harbor and get down to
collect fees and tariffs on the docks before any goods could
be unloaded from the many ships arriving from around
the world. The parking lot next to the building was once
known as Long Wharf and ships docked here. Later it
was filled in.
