New sights in Boston

Posted on August 16, 2017


So I have been enjoying my sojourns into Boston to meet with potential consulting clients. I recently was lucky to have a client located right near Fenway Park. Yes, that’s right, right next to the home of the Red Sox. I walked from Back Bay Station to this location. I was fascinated by the walk because I have never walked this route before, even with all the walking I do in Boston!

Here are some of the interesting sights I saw.

mystery entrance

1. A tucked away mystery entrance.

This looks like an entrance to an old subway stop, but I don’t know. The architecture is pretty cool, with some Victorian looking street lights. The fence makes it look like a prison though.

clock on walk to fenway

2. Old-fashioned clock.

I just love these old clocks. You don’t see too many of them these days since they have all been torn down to make room for modern stuff.

emerald necklace park

3. Part of the “Emerald Necklace.”

For those of you who aren’t native Bostonians, the Emerald Necklace is a 1,100-acre chain of parks linked by parkways and waterways in Boston and Brookline, Massachusetts. It gets its name from the way the planned chain appears to hang from the “neck” of the Boston peninsula. (Description taken from Wikipedia.)

Who knew that there was a park tucked away here? This picture doesn’t do it justice.

Reason # 101 why I love walking in the city, you just never know what you’ll see!

What about you? What interesting sights have you seen lately?
