I read with interest in yesterday's Business section, the story of a company called "Boathouse Sports" which made racing gear for the rowers in London. The company employs 225 workers and is under the rardar, but what caught my eye was the fact that it originated in a sports factory in Northern Liberties in 1998. I don't remember it and wonder if any of you know where it was located. The company has since moved but is still in business in north Philadelphia.
BTW, I have a nice over in London who is sending me daily reports on the festivities. It really brings the Olympics close to home and makes them more personal.
