I would like to get to know Boston better--never been. Does it have much of a "street-scene"--I mean in the sense of hustle and bustle, outdoor cafes etc?

Boston is great - it's very European, with all the rowhouses and old churches and palaces, but remains quintessentialy American. Great photos

The streets are generally busy. Outdoor cafes when the weather is nice.

Thanks to everyone for all the great comments!

The following pictures feature the North End. Boston's North End is known as an Italian neighborhood.

After getting off the T at the Haymarket Station, you cross this park to reach the North End.

Sometimes you can find a view from a parking garage. And sometimes you will find old Cadillacs:

Brilliant captures Expat.


The people shots are very atmospheric: a combination of blue-collar and Italianate in feel. That Italian flavour gives great life and animation to the streets.
