Harbor, Gloucester, MA

Gloucester is the second oldest seaport in Massachusetts. It was settled in 1623 after Plymouth in 1620, even before Boston.

The wikipedia article is here. The official web site is here.

Seafaring and fishing have taken its toll on the populace of Gloucester. In its over 350-year history, Gloucester has lost over 10,000 men to the Atlantic Ocean. These are memorialized by the "Man at the Wheel" statue at Gloucester Harbor.
