^Because I have so many Boston pictures to post, I would prefer to keep this soley as my thread. Hope that is OK with everybody.

Regarding, Padre Pio ---- I don't know anything about him or the processions, except what I have learned by Googling. I don't think he is considered a saint in my church (Episcopal/Anglican). Apparently, the Italians of Boston's North End like him. It was completely by accident that I was there for the procession. It made a great opportunity to photograph people. Typically, I am uncomfortable aiming my camera at strangers on the street, except in situations like this where it is welcome or goes unnoticed.

I am pleased by all the wonderful comments! Much appreciated!

For a change of pace, I am going to show some pictures of a suburban area. In fact, this is the town where I live.

Melrose is seven miles north of Boston. Settled in the 1600s, much of the development was in the late 1800s when the commuter rail lines from Boston opened. Many residents of Melrose are within walking distance of a train station.

Melrose gets it's name from a town in Scotland. The landscape reminded an early settler of Melrose, Scotland.

The first picture shows the Boston skyline as seen from one of our hills:

Melrose looks like a nice suburb to move to if one wishes to be within good distance of work in Metro Boston.

Yes, Manrush, that is true. My partner and I have always liked living in the core city. But, we wanted a house with a yard for our two dogs. And because detached houses in the city of Boston can be very expensive, we found a modest house we could afford in Melrose near the train. Some people move to the suburbs for their kids, we did it for our dogs!

Does it remind you of residential & suburban areas of Ohio cities? I think New England & Ohio can look similar. Especially in areas developed in late 1800s & early 1900s.

Melrose looks like a great place to live - especially if you have kids ( or dogs!).

Some lovely homes, and clean and pleasant high streets.

I can see why you would want to live there.

How often do you go into Boston itself? ( apart from work!)

Openly Jane, the train stops around the corner from my house with only six stops to downtown Boston. It is easy for me to go into Boston, but I don't have much need to go. Everything I need on a daily basis is nearby. We go into the city about once a week or every two weeks to try a restaurant or explore a neighborhood.

Next, I will feature Chelsea, which is across the river from downtown Boston. Chelsea has always been a neighborhood for new immigrants. First settled in 1624and named after the neighborhood in London. I took these pics last winter.

Enjoy the tour of Chelsea and her amazing views:
