Found this closeup of the same view of Boston I posted on the previous page. Thought it looked cool.

For some reason the appearances of Boston and Montreal look very similar to me.

Montreal and Boston became big prominent cities at roughly the same time. They are 2 of the oldest big metros in Canada/US and are located in the same region. Their built forms speak to the era in which they were built and their affluence 100 years ago.

Where they differ is in their demographic makeup. Montreal was heavily French while Boston was heavily British Isles. You see that reflected in the architecture.

Was that originally all old residential housing stock in that last photo? It's odd how it abruptly changes into surface parking and those sports facilities.
