The winter waterfront is especially appealing to those of us with a taste for pristine simplicity. Here, empty finger piers and classic, New England, shingled sheds reach into the chilly harbor. The modest work and recreational buildings, marching piles, and decked platforms quietly await the summer bustle of boat and foot traffic. We can see deep into the stark harborside framework, which is designed to support summer life, much the same way we can see through the branches of winter trees without leaves. It's an intriguing seasonal perspective.
