Boston, Massachusetts

Boston was founded on September 17, 1630, by Puritan colonists from England. Today it is well known for its higher education and professional sports teams. As a city Boston was much smaller than I expected. The downtown skyline is similar to a Cleveland or a Jacksonville.

The city’s economy is also based on research, electronics, engineering, finance, and biotechnology. Recently, Boston has been experiencing gentrification and has one of the highest costs of living in the United States. Overall it is a great city to bring your camera to and learn a little history.

Many of my photos here are of historic Fenway Park. Being a die hard Minnesota Twins and Cleveland Indians fan, I don’t often like much about the Red Sox, but at the same time, as a baseball purist I have to put it in the same category as Wrigley Field as one of the top two stadiums in the majors. It has served as the home of the Boston Red Sox since it opened in 1912, and is the oldest Major League Baseball stadium currently in use.
