^ Instead of wasting time arguing, just post some damn pictures!! It's free!!

You can go on dozens of sites and find pictures of the places you want to see featured, and the vast majority of the sites will allow you to post them on forums as long as you properly cite them, don't hotlink (steal bandwidth), and aren't using them commercially. There are also free image hosts where you can post the found images to avoid having to hotlink (although some sites like Flickr don't even seem to mind that).

^ The part I like the best about Boston's skyline are the turn of the 19th century town-houses. Some of them are particularly beautiful, and in fact Beacon Hill reminds me a lot of some of the wealthier old Georgian town-houses in provincial English cities like Liverpool.

Yes it's very 'European', as some like to say.

There is actually a pretty good reason why parts of Boston even seem like London; London lost almost all of its architecture in the Great Fire of 1666, therefore some of Boston's earliest buildings were built roughly in the same time frame as the rebuilding of London. For example, Boston's oldest church "Old North Church" opened in 1723, one year before the similarly styled St Martin in the Fields in London.

I like Boston, I think it's charming and quaint. However, Boston's city hall is a bit peculiar surrounded by of early American architecture buildings.
