Following the Sept. 16 shootings at the Washington D.C. Navy Yard, employees were shaken but the historical yard remained open for tourists. Journalism student Jordan Frias reports in the Charlestown edition of the Boston Globe’s “Your Town,” that tourists are still visiting the Charlestown Navy Yard, the home of the U.S.S. Constitution in spite of the tragic event at its Washington D.C. counterpart. Unlike the Washington D.C. Navy Yard, Charlestown is not an active military installation.
Frias is a student in instructor Lisa Chedekel’s “Reporting for Your Town” class.
