On the North Side.
North Side; the gray building is Paul Revere's house.
From in front of Paul Revere's house.
Some folks in front of Paul Revere's house.
Wasn't supposed to take pics inside Paul Revere's house, but wanted to catch this poem so I could read it on my camera later. Ends up? Too small to read, even when zoomed. That's what I get.
Fabulous farmer's market, nasty resulting trash.
Where the Boston Massacre occurred (I think).
Irish potato famine memorial, in front of Borders bookstore. It's pretty moving.
My hotel, the Langham

More Ed Gorey coolness.
I keep meaning to look into the history of this church. Cool.
Site of first public school in America, built in 1635.
I totally didn't get this random-seeming bronze donkey in the courtyard of the old city hall at first.
Then I saw this, and it made sense.
A Ruth Chris steakhouse now occupies part of the old city hall, the patio of which overlooks and old cemetery. I kind of like that.
I spied this little bookshop, Commonwealth Books, in an alley and had to visit.
