Where Future VP Elbridge Gerry Invented the Gerrymander

Unfortunately, the gerrymander historical marker appears to be MIA. In two trips to Boston since February, I have been unable to find it. The wall where I believe it was once mounted has been removed, with big glass window panes of a bagel shop taking its place.
