I agree with that and it does bother me. Luckily at ground level the city is amazing!

Awesome pics. I also like the one from Tufts the best. We are all a bunch of density whores on this forum because dense cities are the best!

also, being a North Shore native, the Chelsea vantage point is what Boston is to us up here. Having driven over the Tobin a million times will do that to you..............the views from the MIT side of the Charles across from BU are KILLER!
