"This is an airport that's almost an island"
It was built in 1923 as Jeffrey Field and was used for the Army Air Corps but today it is the massive airport known as Logan. Surrounded on water by three sides, it is a huge 2400 acres and employs 16,000 people. Logan's growth has been slow and over the years while it managed to eat up one residential neighborhood completely - Wood Island - and now the nearest one is Jeffries Point, a part of East Boston. There, one finds a neighborhood seemingly untouched by progress that is inhabited by all sorts of people who don't mind the noise and wholove the beautiful architecture of the houses.
Beloved and loathed, Logan is one of the top busiest airports in the United States, and not many complain that it is so close to the city.
