The Flying Fish has the best water view of Boston Harbor, and keeps an eye on wind speeds for boaters.
Behind Our Flying Fish Sculpture
A 45-foot-long sculpture sits on the seaside corner of the building’s roof. Designed and crafted by Boston-area artist David Tonnesen, it is an abstract rendition of a New England cod.
Our Flying Fish is not only an artistic contribution to the skyline, but also a scientific instrument useful for boaters. The scales are freewheeling rotors that move in response to prevailing currents of wind direction. The eye of the giant fish changes color in response to wind speeds, according to the Marine Beaufort Scale.
