At the next
large intersection you can turn right on Wharf
Street for a short detour to Nahant Harbor,
a quaint place that could easily have its place
in Maine with its small boats at the anchor
in the warm months or parked on the lot in winter.
Go back on Willow road and continue straight,
climbing the small hill and turning left, passing
a nice church on the left until you reach the
intersection with Nahant Road. Follow Nahant
Road on the right, walking past very nice houses
on the right, and bear left at the next fork.
You soon reach the gate of the Northeastern
University research center that occupies the
tip of the Nahant peninsula.
