Newbury Street Tips (2)

Boston Marathon Tragedy

Favorite thing On April 15, 2013, two bombs exploded during the Boston Marathon. Three spectators were killed and more than 260 people were injured. The authorities discovered two likely suspects from surveillance tapes. Four days after the bombing, the search for these suspects found them and a chase began to catch them. One was killed and the other was finally caught but not before another victim was killed during the chase. I visited Boston in 2015. Two years after this tragedy. And, still you see some symbolism in the city remembering this event. More detailed information can be found at this website at the History Channel.

Stroll Newbury Street

Favorite thing Newbury Street is the place where affluent, trendy, and beautiful people go to see and be seen. Your chance of running into a Ferrari or Porsche, or a Euro-wannabe, is higher here than anywhere else in Boston. The place is an eclectic mix of posh designer outlets, chic boutiques, sidewalk cafes, ice cream parlors, and ethnic restaurants. Most shopfronts are housed in the tidy townhouses typical of Back Bay, giving them a charming Euro feel. Even if you're not into people watching, it can be fun to walk around here, day or night.. Newbury street ends at the Public Garden while Copley Plaza is just a block away to the south and the Esplanade a few blocks to the north, so it's really the hub of things.

Fondest memory Ben and Jerry's, Emack and Bolio's, Herrell's, J.P. Lick's, all ice cream shops :)
