One of the reasons I wanted to get to Boston ASAP this spring was that the Public Gardens were in full bloom and it truly is a sight to see. I entered the Gardens through the Arlington Street gate at the George Washington statue.
That is one of the famous swanboats. I did it once many years ago in the mid 80s and hope to again one of these days.
Next thing on the list was the new Edgar Allen Poe statue at the corner of Boylston and Charles Streets. Although he is associated with Baltimore, he was born in Boston and apparently hated the city. He is facing the direction of the home in which he was born, although I did not venture down to see it.
The Telltale Heart.
And some quotes embedded in the sidewalk as well.
