Beantown (I mean Boston), MA

I have been to Boston many times however the latest time I was there was over the Labor Day weekend and have to say I loved it more than ever. Boston truly is a great city full of character, history, diversity, density, culture and more. And this comes from someone who lives in NYC.

From the Boston.gov website: Boston, first incorporated as a town in 1630, and as a city in 1822, is one of America's oldest cities, with a rich economic and social history. What began as a homesteading community eventually evolved into a center for social and political change. Boston has since become the economic and cultural hub of New England.

As the region's hub, Boston is home to over 617,000 residents, many institutions of higher education, some of the world's finest inpatient hospitals, and numerous cultural and professional sports organizations. Boston-based jobs, primarily within the finance, health care, educational, and service areas, numbered nearly 660,000 in 2002. Millions of people visit Boston to take in its historic neighborhoods, attend cultural or sporting events, and conduct business.

Thanks for your nice pictures of Boston, ctman987!

I agree with you, Boston is a sensational city which has everything besides of its beauty, history, diversity...

I´m always wishing to return there. It´s just going to be one year since our last visit, and we continue missing it very much. I was there three times, and I hope to return very soon.

Congrats and greetings from Madrid, Spain!
Merry Christmas and Happy 2012!

This was quite the ancient thread bump! Fun to see the changes in the South Waterfront.
