When you think of Boston, you probably picture walking along the cobblestone streets of Beacon Hill, tasting the delicious Italian food of the North End or hearing the roar from Fenway Park as you stroll down Queensbury Street. This is quintessential Beantown-some of the oldest and most historic neighborhoods in the city. They are what draw thousands of tourists to Boston every year, and I can almost guarantee they’re the backdrop in any Boston-based movie you’ve seen. While we Bostonians love these neighborhoods, we often forget to pay our respects to the other niche communities that contribute to this vibrant urban setting, specifically the up-and-coming NEW Waterfront.
Sustainability, at its simplest and most fundamental level, is defined as “a city’s or country’s ability to sustain, or its capacity to endure.” But, in a world filled with one too many harmful fertilizers and pesticides, is it too late for cities to introduce sustainable food markets and implement successful environmental policies and programs? Is it too late to endure? Many would argue that it is.

Whatever the occasion, there’s always a delicious option right around the corner. We’ve highlighted a few of our favorites below:
While BIGfish’s current office space has been praised by Fast Company for its design, things didn’t start out that way. In fact, when the company was founded in 1999 by our fearless leader David Gerzof Richard, the space didn’t even have windows. But our upgraded, sunlit office isn’t the only mark of growth for this formerly one-man operation.
It's hard to believe that it's already the end of August; this summer has (sadly) flown by. Over the last several weeks, we've been wrapping things up with our two summer interns, Julia and Kelly. Julia, our PR intern, worked hard all summer long building media lists, contributing to the BIGfish Twitter account, tracking clients' press mentions and much more. Kelly, our crafty copywriter, wrote dozens of articles for client Iceland Naturally, blog posts for BIGfish and pitches. We're definitely going to miss having them around, but wish them the best of luck as they head back to school this fall.
