Boston

Boston City Hall is not the prettiest building. Being “blocky” and all concrete, it takes some hits by architectural critics. But….it looks rather nice with the light from the rising sun on it.

      Actually, last year they set up a Christmas Village in the plaza on the other side. I posted some pics there last year and I’m sure I’ll do the same again this season. Cheers

    Impressive photo. Was just in Boston a few months ago and was struck by how stark and utilitarian this building looked as I walked by. The curved ramps on the northern face broke up the monotony a bit, but I still felt like this would be a miserable place to work.

    However, your right. It does look beautiful in the right light.
    Cheers!

      Yes, it is very utilitarian looking. The old city hall was so 19th century classical in nature. They started to put colored lights on it at night and that makes it look better after dark. Cheers!

    Great shot but it is from that bland “concrete is king” era 😦
    I seem to remember that the Plaza area was in the movie The Departed – is that right?
