Shutdown of history

Title (Dublin Core)

Shutdown of history

Description (Dublin Core)

One of the core aspects of Boston is the bustling night life offered on many streets. This is facilitated by the amazing restaurants and bars that are located throughout the city. However, it has been sad to see some of the oldest bars shutting down because of COVID with no plans to reopen even after the pandemic is over. Bars like Whiskey’s, the Pour House, Flat Top Johnny’s and The Field Pub all carry with them history of Boston life with the Pour House even being home to some incredibly famous people’s favorite foods. It saddens me that these places may never open again because I walked past them almost every day that I was living in Boston whether I was going to work or just going on a stroll of the city. These places will close and lose the history that they unknowingly carry, but they will be kept in the eye of history when future generations talk about the economic hardships brought by this pandemic.
