Boston & New York City Skylines

Today features two of the most recognizable skylines in the United States.  Above you can see the Prudential Building and the Hancock Tower with the Charles River in the foreground.

Below, you can see a beautiful sunset on the facades of the Upper East Side overlooking Central Park in Manhattan.  Two beautiful cities with incredibly rich history, both overlooking beautiful natural settings. Happy Summer to everyone!

The Hancock

Today I’m featuring an iconic Boston landmark – The John Hancock Tower located in Boston’s Back Bay.  There’s a special reason for Boston’s guest appearance…tonight (yesterday if you’re reading this) I was in the city for a work function at the Mandarin Oriental hotel, a finely appointed new hotel offering located next to the Prudential Center.  I had a great time with some folks from work and met some great new people, and enjoyed some fresh sushi.

Unfortunately, the night took a turn for the worse when it was time to pick the car up from the valet.  As I handed my ticket, I heard a few words you never want to hear as someone who checked your car with a valet, that went something like this: “Sir, I would like to speak with you. Please follow me.” How ominous does that sound?  Long story short, it wasn’t the worst thing in the world – no accident or anything, but my car wouldn’t start.  The folks at the hotel and the valet company were very helpful and apologetic…After a ride to the airport and getting a rental car, I arrived home in Portsmouth close to midnight so editing a Portsmouth shot was out of the question…and even though I have some in the queue, it just seemed more appropriate to feature The Hancock today.  Hope you like it.

Fenway Park | Boston, MA

Tonight’s post features a place special to (nearly) all New Englanders.   Seen above is infamous the Green Monster and its newly added seats.  The Sports Authority sign welcomed two home runs against the Blue Jays on Friday the 28th, thankfully one of them was from the Red Sox courtesy of Jason Bay to tie it up at 5.  Below is a view of the field from the stands along the 1st baseline with the ominous stormy sky, before the heavy rains arrived.
