|Boston, Massachussets, USA
Ah, Boston. I was supposed to go here for grad school for Fall Term 2003 but God had other plans for me.
I've never been to Boston. But people have been telling me that Boston is such a beautiful city. Well I can't confirm that so I'll take their word for it.
I went online to research about Boston and this is what I found out.
Some of the places a Boston visitor should go or do.
* Beacon Hill
Boston's National Historic District Neighborhood. This is the ideal neighbordhood for a walk in Boston. There are two historical Beacon Hill houses.
- the 19th Century Nichols House Museum still has the well-worn furnishings and traditional decor of an "upper crust" Boston family of that time.
- the Harrison Gray Otis House is the Headquarters of the Society for the Preservation of New England Antiquities and it is still decorated in the style maintained by the wealthy, important family that built it at the end of the 18th Century.
- Louisburg square has a collection of beautiful row houses still inhabited by wealthy families, including Louisa May Alcott's house at No. 10.
Information from Beacon Hill Online.
* Newbury Street
Boston's own Rodeo Drive. It is lined with expensive boutiques and galleries, as well as outdoor cafes for watching the world go by.
* Harvard Square
This is the place for serious people watching. Lined with so many bookstores and unique stores, Harvard Square has become an overgrown Anymall, USA. Oh and it's surrounded by the historic buildings of Harvard University.
By the way, did I mention that Boston is a coffee town?
Information from Boston Online.
Donald O'Connor is dead! One of my most favorite movies is Singin' in the Rain, mostly because of the tandem of Gene Kelly and Donald O'Connor. And now they're both dead. What a sad thing for Hollywood.
