Exchange Place | Boston, MA

For today’s post we travel back through the archives to December 2009 on a quick trip I made to Boston.  This image features a few buildings…one of which is among my favorites in the Financial District.  Exchange Place is a glassy structure that rises out of the 12-story Boston Stock Exchange, a classic Boston piece of architecture originally constructed in 1896 and redeveloped in 1985 to feature the glass tower.  What I like about the building (and I’m sure others hate), is the fact that the original structure is still standing and compliments the new addition, bringing a nice blend of the modern and the historic character of the area. I love the way the structure captures the light around it and reflects neighboring buildings.

The Apple Store | 5th Avenue NYC

Today’s post is in honor of the iPhone 4 that should arrive sometime during the day today…a day earlier than the initially anticipated arrival on the 24th.

In our New York City adventure on Friday, we stopped for a quick snapshot of “the Cube” – aka the Apple Store on 5th Avenue.  The store isn’t all that dissimilar from other Apple stores you’ve probably been to, other than the fact that the real estate was probably ridiculously expensive, and the store is underground with an attractive (and very Apple) glassy exterior.  Looking forward to the new toy!
