You're right, to an extent. There are many neighborhoods in Boston that could be out of any US city. But no other city in the country has maintained such a large number of historic neighborhoods quite like Boston. There's tons of history and old world architecture that makes it very unique. Walk around Beacon Hill or the North End and tell us that it feels like any other typical city. No way.

It looks wonderful to me ; there's a real autumn which
we do not have here in California . It doesn't look like any city here in the West where buildings from the 1920s are considered "historic". .

Looks beautiful. The third photo almost looks like San Francisco with the Victorians and that hill.

Thanks Nancy. I do notice something of a resemblance to San Francisco (Alamo Square?) now that you mention it.

I forgot to post this picture earlier... it's of the James Blake House, the oldest surviving house in Boston (built ca. 1648-1661). It's located on Columbia Rd. in Dorchester and open to the public for tours on the third Sunday of every month.

Yes, it looks like those old English-style houses that we had on Long Island . Thanks again for posting these.
