And while the Financial District is impressively dense, it's also just a flat-topped wall of 550-600 foot towers. No real focal point. Too much brown, not enough glass. Hopefully Millennium Tower will start to fix this by adding a bit of central peak and some much needed glass to the Financial District.
as accurate a description of Boston's skyline as you can get, well done Shawn. Agree with everything here
