The Mayor had reached out to General Electric and Synergy on behalf of the community to keep the bridge in place. The Boston Planning & Development Agency (formerly BRA) received numerous comments from Fort Point neighbors and organizations regarding the importance of the bridge during the General Electric Headquarters project public process.
The neighborhood icon identified for its historic value during the official study and designation of Fort Point as a Landmark District, serves as an important historic architectural element and reminder of Fort Point's industrial past, particularly the New England Confectionery Company (NECCO). The bridge has been represented many times over in local artwork as illustrated below by local Fort Point artist Karen McFeaters.
