The Seaport World Trade Center is located in the heart of the Seaport District of South Boston. It is presently a convention center and exhibition hall and a luxury hotel covering 800,000 square feet (74,322 square meters).

It was originally built in 1901 as the Commonwealth Pier in order to handle the largest vessels of the time that serviced the Boston Waterfront. It was an important maritime hub for Boston as it facilitated both passengers and cargo well into the 1970's. At the time of its construction, it was the largest pier building in the world.

The Commonwealth Pier in Boston is believed to be the starting point for the deadly Second Wave of the Great Influenza Pandemic of 1918 which killed 50 to 100 million people globally. Here it was first noted that sailors fell ill with the flu. Since Boston was such a major port, the flu easily spread with departing ships to many major ports in the United States.

Dies ist ein Überblick von USA

The United States is one of the most diverse countries on earth, jam packed full of amazing sights from St. Patrick's cathedral in New York to Mount Hollywood California.The Northeast region is where it all started. Thirteen British colonies fought the American Revolution from here and won their independence in the first successful colonial rebellion in history. Take a look at these rolling hills carpeted with foliage along the Hudson river here, north of New York City.The American south is known for its polite people and slow pace of life. Probably they move slowly because it's so hot. Southerners tend not to trust people from "up north" because they talk too fast. Here's a cemetery in Georgia where you can find graves of soldiers from the Civil War.The West Coast is sort of like another country that exists to make the east coast jealous. California is full of nothing but grizzly old miners digging for gold, a few gangster rappers, and then actors. That is to say, the West Coast functions as the imagination of the US, like a weird little brother who teases everybody then gets famous for making freaky art.The central part of the country is flat farmland all the way over to the Rocky Mountains. Up in the northwest corner you can find creative people in places like Portland and Seattle, along with awesome snowboarding and good beer. Text by Steve Smith.
