I was living in Boston during "The Big Dig" which was the massive project to put the highway underground between 1991-2006. It is nice to see this beautiful garden that has been built on top of the new underground highway. It is also nice how...More
Great improvement over the elevated rail line that this replaced. The line essentially split the city, which was a shame. Too bad the corruption, huge overruns and continuing problems with the "big dig" that created this and put the rail and highway underground somewhat tarnish...More
The revamped freeway system (i.e. demolished and put under the city) has opened up the seafront, the North End and the heart of Boston. Lovely gardens running all along the main street along the waterfront. Beautiful and makes the city so much more appealing.
This is a beautiful stretch of greenery on the fringe of the downtown area in Boston.
There's some interesting sculptures based around mid-century neon signs, as well as a beer garden, which I think is seasonal.
I have visited Boston so many times I can no longer count them. I still love to visit The Greenway. It's quiet and peaceful if you want. I can also be fun as many events are hosted there. This is one of the few places...More
The largest area of the city, Downtown is rich with historical and iconic sites in Boston. Stroll through one of Boston’s most famous green spaces, the Boston Public Gardens, check out and make way for duckling statues, picnic under a beautiful tree overlooking the pond, and walk over the iconic footbridge where, during summer time, you will catch a swan boat toting children and eager tourists through the pond. Have
your camera ready to capture its peaceful beauty in the middle of a bustling city. Continue on through the Gardens and take in some open green space at the Boston Common, where you can spend time throwing a frisbee, sitting on a park bench, or, in the winter time, skating on the frog pond. Head north from the end of the Common to see the golden dome of the State House, and travel through government center to Quincy Market and Faneuil Hall, both a historic and popular destination worth a quick visit for a first time to Boston. Head to Long Wharf to visit the Aquarium, or catch a boat to Charlestown or even Cape Cod.
As the others have said, the sculpture, which is suspended high in the air by wires that are barely visible, can be viewed 24/7. A bright sunny day really brings out all the different shades of blues, oranges, etc. On windy... More
As the others have said, the sculpture, which is suspended high in the air by wires that are barely visible, can be viewed 24/7. A bright sunny day really brings out all the different shades of blues, oranges, etc. On windy days the sculpture is a truly "free spirit" dancing across the Boston skyline.
