      Thank you very much. I love Boston. I cannot say that I have seen everything, because I have not been to Paris, London, Tokyo and many other very famous cities, but I think that Boston can be considered one of them. Thank you.

      I’m not sure, but I think Commonwealth Avenue, especially at the beginning near Boston Public Gardens, is the most amazing street in city. Thank you very much, Elvira.

    Wow, this looks just stunning and you can only imagine how it must be back then when these buildings where new. I wish we would still build that way. It has so much charm and soul. Thank you so much for sharing. I’m in Germany and your photos are like a tiny sight seeing for breakfast for me. You always make my day. Thank you!

      You are absolutely right. Back Bay and Beacon Hill can rightfully be considered the face of Boston. They have the most impressive view of old Boston. Thank you.

        You are very welcome, Vova, but I also see old Boston in Swampscott and Marblehead, and other small towns we sometimes sail to, when we visit. It is a different face of Boston, so to speak, but nonetheless fascinating.

        These small towns are also beautiful and have their own charm (I also plan to go there to take pictures). But the old parts of these cities are built of wood and are more reminiscent of the settlements of the first generations of Americans. Boston, especially in the center, looks different because it is mostly built of bricks, and the buildings are not much, but still taller.
