As Winter Storm Grayson continues to pummel the East Coast with snow and wind, Boston’s Seaport neighborhood has also been hit with flooding. This afternoon around one o’clock, I ventured down to Fan Pier where Boston Harbor had flooded the Harbor Walk. The snow accumulation wasn’t too bad, but the worst part was the high wind gusts that made it almost impossible to see.
Check out the pictures and video I took below, as well as some videos I found on Instagram. There was no way that I’d be able to walk down Seaport Blvd., but it looks like the entire road is flooded in front of Del Frisco’s and Legal Seafood Harborside.

Boston Harbor flooding the Harbor Walk. You can see the ladder handles that normally are well above the water level.
East India Row Apartments in the background, and Long Wharf is barely visible
Fan Pier Park with well over a foot of snow in some areas due to snow drifts
In areas of Fan Pier Park where there aren’t hills, Boston Harbor has flooded more than 30 feet from the seawall

Smart choice: Leaving Boston Seaport for Florida (cold here too) and look at the street! I mean look at the Ocean! There is no street. This is right outside the front door at work! Real time video today, bring a boat! 🌬❄️🌊 #Boston #Seaport #Ocean #Flood #Blizzard #GetOut #Snow #Artic #Cold #Freezing
