Boston’s Love Locks

Back in 2013, in honor of the death of DOMA, three small heart shaped locks were shackled to the ugly chain link fence over the Massachusetts Turnpike on Massachusetts Avenue in the Back Bay.

Since the summer of 2013, many more locks have been added and now the chain link fence is covered by several hundred padlocks; each presumably to symbolize and commemorate relationships here in Boston. Some of the locks have names, dates, or quotes written on them, which you can read if you look closely.  Boston Love Locks

  1. Every time I walk across the bridge I’m happily reminded of Paris. And when Didier died in December I placed a lock in his honor-as we had placed on years before in Paris when we first started dating.
