Rose Kennedy Greenway, Boston, Massachusetts, USA



For about 40 years, the central artery highway thundered through downtown Boston. In the 1990's the "Big Dig" project built underground tunnels for the traffic, freeing the surface area to become the Rose Kennedy Greenway, a mile long stretch of beautiful urban parkland. The former Custom House building stands tall in the background.



An art installation produces cloud-like mist.



Reflections of the skyline.



Just off the Greenway, the golden dome at Faneuil Hall shines in the bright sunlight.



Leaving the Greenway to wander the North End, this street enjoys an over-arching tree canopy.



The North End's North Square is a stone's throw from the restored former home of Paul Revere.



Bikers and balloon animals hang out along the main street in the North End.



Thoughts of the Italian homeland are depicted on this signpost in the mostly Italian-American neighborhood.



Mike's Pastry in the North End is one of the best known establishments in the entire city - especially if you have a sweet tooth. Cannolis and more!



A bike tour winds through the streets.



Street-side restaurant windows are wide open with the warming weather.



Kids enjoy playing on a temporary art installation in the Greenway.

The Rose Kennedy Greenway snakes through this part of Boston where the elevated noisy highway once stood. Instead of cars and trucks incessantly rattling through town, now a greenspace unfolds along the former route.
