New England Reflections (Cont.): The Platypus Travels Part XXVI
The best way to get to know any city is to wander off the beaten path. This can always be dangerous, but if you're careful about what paths you wander off on things work out just fine. We did a little roaming (time prevented us from more than a little) in Boston to get to know the City of Brick a bit better. What follows are some particularly nice Victorian and Georgian style buildings we encountered on our "off-roading" expedition. Notice in several of the pictures the odd juxtaposition of the older red brick buildings with the towering glass and steal skyscrapers that surround them. That became a recurring theme throughout our visit.
