Boston Common and Public Garden, Boston
The B Common's connection to Central Park

When I first visited the Boston Common, it felt very familiar. Leaving the park I learned why-- Frederick Law Olmsted and architect Calvert Vaux teamed up to landscape it as they had Central Park, Prospect Park and Riverside Park in New York City. Perhaps, because I went in early Spring, it felt not as playful as Central Park but instead very serene.
