USA's Most Valuable Fishing Port


New Bedford is a port city in the southeastern corner of Massachusetts.  It's located about 100 km (around 60 mi.) south of Boston.  Its waterfront sits on Buzzard's Bay, opposite Cape Cod and Martha's Vineyard.  First settled in 1652, New Bedford became the pre-eminent center of the whaling trade during its heyday in the mid-19th century.  Seen here in this drone video by AlTheGreat, it continues to be an important fishing center, and it's also the home of one of the USA's largest concentrations of Portuguese immigrants.
