    I love the old building very much. We should go back to that style. Just look at all the details. Thank you so much for sharing Vova. ❤ Have a pawesome day, stay healthy and safe.

      Thank you very much. I like the old architectural styles too, but I can’t say that I don’t appreciate the new ones. Indeed, new buildings, as a rule, are devoid of such details, but the power of these buildings is very impressive, and the use of sometimes different unusual materials is amazing.

      Many thanks. It was very interesting for me to put two completely different architectural styles from two different eras in one photo.

    Oddly enough, I saw a beautiful church sandwiched on all sides by multi-storied buildings, in Waikiki, Hawaii. Where once churches and their spires towered over the landscape, it is sad that they are now dwarfed by progressive, modern buildings.
    Your photo is a clear testament to the times!

      Thank you very much for sharing your thoughts. Progress cannot be stopped, we must move forward. And I am very proud of Boston, because with this movement, Boston still preserves and protects old buildings (and not individual buildings, but entire parts of the city) worthy of memory. To be convinced of this, it is enough to walk around the city.

    This photo has a lot of bling! A lovely photo that tells a story of progress and reverence for history. ❤

    I spent my first three years in Boston when my father was in college there. As an adult, I visited once and had a very nice time. We saw Fanuel Hall and Chinatown and ate some lobster at the beach. On the way home, we saw a replica of the Mayflower at Plymouth Rock.

    Have a wonderful day, Vova!

      Thanks a lot Cheryl. I am very glad that you enjoyed spending time and visiting Boston and New England. There is something to see here, because if you look at history, you will see that America began here. Much has happened here, and it is very pleasant that some of the sights associated with this can still be visited. The nature here is amazing too. Sometimes we have blizzards and storms, but who counts.

        People in New Mexico, or Florida, or Texas, might argue about America beginning in the East – to say nothing of the Pueblos! All of those lights wouldn’t have been seen 200 years ago, either….

        Even if they are wrong, their conviction testifies to their love for their states. And it’s worth appreciation.
