Reinventing Boston: A City Engineered NEW
Boston by Foot Guide
A walk through Boston is a walk through time! The eclectic urban landscape is composed of layers of history whose story is revealed by the clues left behind. The city has aggressively reinvented itself over and over again to accommodate a growing population, the needs of business and industry, public and private transportation and public health and safety. It is engineered--from the first subway to Long Wharf through the Big Dig. Our tour will cover the invention of the telephone, the first American subway, the rise and fall of interstate highways, the recovery of the harbor, and perhaps even a forgotten body of water that was once Ben Franklin’s favorite swimming hole. Limited to 20.
