Boston, Massachusetts & Beyond

I have noticed that Boston is not getting a lot of exposure on SSC. Because I live in the Boston area, I have many pictures of Boston, suburbs & nearby towns. I will start sharing them on this thread for anyone that is interested.

We will start with the Boston Public Library on Copley Square. Designed by Charles Follen McKim of McKim, Mead & White. Circa 1895.

Great photos. Boston looks superb.

My friend ( born in N.Y, but who lived in Boston a while) tells me I'd love the city. I have always been interested in it.

I look forward to seeing more.

Yes, Boston looks great. I'll have to put it on my 'to visit' list.

And maybe, I'll have to go to a Red Sox game - now that L.F.C shares with it - the same owners!

Fenway Victory Gardens established in 1941 to raise vegetables during WW2 are an official Boston Historic Landmark.

A sidetrip to visit a pick-your-own farm in near North Andover.

This is North Parish Unitarian Universalist Church in North Andover. Parish first established in 1644. Current church building dates to 1836. The tower contains a Paul Revere bell cast in 1806.

The farm -- I didn't pick any apples. Too much work & dust for me.

Lovely street scenes from Boston. I think you should post more of your photo-threads over here, Expat.

The following group are pictures I took on Newbury Street which is known for it's fine shopping. They were taken in March towards the very end of winter. This neighborhood is called Back Bay. It was part of the bay/marshland and filled in to allow development.

The first photographs are of Emmanuel Episcopal Church (Anglican) built in 1861. Fitting because it was Newbury Street's first building after the Back Bay was filled.

The first window shown was designed by Frederic Crowninshield. Unusual because it is does not depict a biblical person or story. This picture does not do it justice.

Brilliant idea. Im definately interested.

I've long been fascinated by Boston, but was never sure why. Was fortunate enough to visit there for the first time last summer. Got to do all the cliched stuff- Fenway Park, Boston Common. Im a library nerd though and one of my highlights was, you guessed it.... visiting the Boston Public....

Looking forward to seeing this thread develop further.
