I'd never noticed the incredible architecture the first time I lived here!
The Freedom Trail is easily followed throughout downtown. You can go all the way to Charlestown, about a 4 mile trip.
Old City Hall, in use till 1969.
Irish Famine Memorial
I would love to know the deal with that necklace and if it's not part of the memorial, then I'm surprised it hasn't been stolen.
Rather unfortunate pigeon placement.....
Old South Meeting House
I love the old buildings with new businesses.
Customs House Tower. It's a Marriott now and apparently there's an observation deck. I'm going to have to go up there next time.
The back of Faneuil Hall (pronounced: FAN-you well.)
Very large statue of Mayor Kevin White, who was mayor from 1969-1984!
Quincy Market, full of shops, eateries, push carts and all kinds of great stuff!
Isn't this cool?
There are tons of restaurants at Quincy Market and we were starving so we just picked this place. Were we in for a surprise.
This place hires obnoxious staff on purpose to harass the customers. They tie bibs around your neck and they also make paper hats for everyone with insults written on them.
Our server accosting Cheryl. He was truly a sarcastic dick but that's OK because I was sarcastic back to him and I probably flipped him off at least 4 times. We thoroughly enjoyed our meal and the antics of the staff as they interacted with the customers. Like the girls that wanted orange slices for their drinks and the bartender throwing them across the restaurant at the girls.
My server called me Grandma. That was one of the times I flipped him off. He wrote this on my hat.
Another shot of Faneuil Hall.
