Love the simplicity and the symbolism in this memorial. Very powerful and disturbing. Recommend for anyone down in the Faneuil Hall area to walk through.

The largest area of the city, Downtown is rich with
historical and iconic sites in Boston. Stroll through
one of Boston’s most famous green spaces, the Boston
Public Gardens, check out and make way for duckling

during summer time, you will catch a swan boat toting
