Since the fall of 2010, Faneuil Hall has been surrounded by temporary fencing, its first floor and basement closed to the public, as it undergoes renovations to create a new visitors' center for Bostons historic sites.
National Park Service spokesman Sean Hennessey said the Cradle of Liberty was the logical site for the new center.
Thats where the people are, so were kind of bringing the visitors center to the people, Hennessey said.
