Boston Treasures


Boston is a city of writers, history, sports, special places, revolution, beauty, contradictions, bridges, divisions, schools, innovation, public spaces and pedestrians.  Boston, that city on the harbor, reaching out to the wider world, yet insulated by its protective cape curling the city into its strong arm; Boston, the cradle of Revolution and bastion of conventional values; Boston, progressive in politics, stodgy in personality; Boston, with its Public Garden as a welcome mat to the world and its tightknit social circles that keeps outsiders at bay; Boston, city of Celtic green, Patriot Red, White, and Blue, Red Sox, Bruins black and gold, and flannel everywhere, even in summer; Boston, you shining beacon on a hill of enlightened promise and shadowy narrow streets sprawling out to City Hall Plaza; Boston, you flotilla of brownstones rising from the marsh of Back Bay; Boston you great little city filled with lore, legend, legacy, and the cresting impulse striving for something more.
