Downtown Boston shopping and theatre district

Boston is one of the most beautiful cities of the States in our opinion. The city offers parks, a harbour, monuments, historical buildings, shopping possibilities and theatres. In this article, I want to share some pictures of my evening walk to a restaurant. In the city centre around the area of Downtown Crossing Station in Winter and Summer Street, you find super stores like Macy’s and Fanuel Hall. For us Europeans it is strange to see so many “Stars and Stripes” in the street, just above the local market stands. Continuing my walk in Summer Street, you see several theatres with flashy lights like the Paramount building and the Boston Opera House. The Boston Opera House has a fantastic façade.

Naar onze mening is Boston één van de mooiste steden van Amerika. De stad telt vele parken, een haven, monumenten, historische gebouwen, mogelijkheden tot winkelen en theaters. In dit artikel wens ik enkele foto’s met u te delen over mijn avondwandeling naar het restaurant. In het stadscentrum rond “Downtown Crossing Station” in Winter en Summer Street, vind je enkele superbekende winkels zoals Macy’s en Fanuel Hall. Voor Europeanen is het raar zoveel vlaggen te zien hangen boven de marktkrampjes. Verder wandelend door Summer Street zie je verschillende Theaters met lichtpanelen zoals op het Paramount gebouw en het Boston Opera House. Het Boston Opera House heeft tevens een prachtige voorgevel..

  4. In 1995 we have been also in Boston. It's a very impressive City: the MIT, Harvard and the rowing boats on the Charles river...

  5. When did you visit Boston? I see you were there in the winter, was it a vacation? Our family went there last summer and fell in love with it, and I have always wanted to go, but will probably never get there. I like that big star you caught at the end of the street.

  12. I have not been to Boston, apart from spending some time at its airport. I hear it is a great city. I understand why you think it is strange that there are so many flags in the US – they place them on buildings and houses all the time in many areas. Here, they place them all around churches too on many occasions.
