    Some streets are too small to appear even on the most detailed of maps. Cedar Lane Way, off Mount Vernon Street in Beacon Hill, is among these, on which automobiles cannot plausibly fit (though some have tried with questionable success- losing mirrors in the process). Even the most meticulous route planners will be taken by surprise upon the sight of such unofficial thoroughfares, their fates seemingly abandoned to a history prior to the internal combustion engine.

    Beacon Hill. It is the wealthy area of Boston. And one of the most ancient because the main part of the city center was gained of the water along the Boston history. The mansions are luxurious and each year the newspapers give an estimation of the most expensive building of Beacon Hill.

    The Charles Street/Beacon Hill area is soooooo cute. Take the T (red line)to Charles MGH I believe. The little houses on the cobblestone and brick streets are so adorable, it's really a picturesque neighborhood.
