Great find DZH22. I have to say I was really under-whelmed when I passed through Boston the first time, but your photos have redeemed it a great deal in my eyes.

Thanks, they're all my pics actually. It's just about finding the right places to take them I have heard somewhere that the area of that pic (BU Bridge) is the only place where you can have a plane flying over a car driving over a train that's rumbling by over a boat.

The skyline mostly gets a bad rap because of the plateau and the lack of significant construction in recent years. It looks like the significant construction may finally be starting (we have heard that one before), beginning with filling the hole in downtown crossing created by leveling Filenes 5 years ago. However, as of right now we are mainly looking at the creation of a larger plateau with just the tiniest overall increase in height. Still, a new 3rd tallest (and tallest in the main cluster on the left side of the picture) is significant any way you look at it.

You should take a Boston/Montreal trip in one fell swoop! They're only about 5-6 hours apart by car, and it's a nice ride through Vermont's Green Mountains. They're basically 2 sides of the same coin, the American side and the French Canadian side

I spent a great number of years in Nova Scotia, and Boston has a very high profile there. I suppose I'd built Boston up in my mind to point where my expectations were unrealistic. I imagined a midtown Manhattan that never materialized through my window. I think many Canadians build up Montreal in the same way; they're both so rich in historical importance to each nation.

I should make a proper trip to Boston, but it will have to wait a couple years. The next 4 trips are all spoken for already.

Then clearly the 5th trip should be a Boston/Montreal extravaganza

Small correction. Distillers Corporation (Gooderham & Worts) was at one point the world's largest distillery, but it no longer exists. It was bought by another Canadian distiller: Hiram Walker, but that too was sold off to foreign interest much like Seagrams.

Distillers, Hiram Walker, and Seagrams do not exist any more.

No update for a week, so here's a few Boston. Keep your eye on it; it looks like many of the long-term 600'+ proposals may all be coming to fruition in the (relatively) near-future.
