Boston-themed carousel designed for Greenway

NEWBURYPORT — There comes a time when every artist hits a wall. For Jeff Briggs, that creative roadblock was this: He did not know how to draw the face of a humble fish.

Briggs’s task is to create the characters that will populate a Boston-themed carousel planned for the Rose Fitzgerald Kennedy Greenway. Instead of the usual horses, riders will sit atop replicas of such iconic local fauna as a right whale, a harbor seal, and that staple of New England cuisine, the Atlantic cod. The indigenous animals, Greenway officials hope, will make the carousel a signature element of the still-developing park.
