Marina Bay is a waterfront community in the Squantum section of Quincy. This area was the site of one of the first air fields in the world. Dennison Airport, of which Amelia Earhart was one of the developers. The Navy took control to be used as a Naval Airstrip during the war. When the Navy left, in 1953, the area was vacant for many years before the vision came about to build a waterfront community of both residential and retail.

During the war, the Fore River Shipyard had a secondary facility in this area, and 35 Destroyers were built from this site.

There are now several different Condominium communities, as well as retail shops and restraunts with a boardwalk overlooking the Marina and Quincy Bay. Waterworks is a very popular nightspot in the warmer months.
