Photos of Boston from the top of the Prudential building

The Pru tower in Boston

Looking down on Boston from one of the two insurance company's skyscraper home bases provides an overall view of what Boston , the city, looks like. It also allows a visitor to the city to gain access to sights that would, for one reason or another, be unaccessible.

Looking east to Charlestown and other cities and across the Charles River onto the MIT campus. Looking west we see the twisting Massachusetts Turnpike

The season is over for the Red Sox (wait 'til next year!) but I'm able to peer inside Fenway Park. I also got a shot of the imfamous Citgo sign, a landmark all it's own. The last shot was taken on the ground outside of the main entrance to the park.

There's lots to see on and near the Charles River. Here we see the Hatch Shell, the campus of MIT in Cambridge activities on the river.
