西瀛里:

      旧时为“迎恩坊”,俗名西营,位于古运河北岸城墙内,弋桥与文亨桥之间。明太祖朱元璋派大将汤和驻守常州,这里是西营所在地,故名。沿街店铺多,因失火,故改名西瀛,取以水克火之意。

      自古这里就是常州的经济中心和军事重地,当年这里商贾云集,大运河上檣桅林立、船帆如织,古城上雉蝶蜿蜒,兵士在城墙上荷戈夜巡。元宵灯会、端午龙舟、中秋赏月、桨声灯影,这里是一幅常州版的“清明上河图”。上世纪三十年代这里更是常州人引以为荣的金融一条街,进入二十一世纪,西瀛里又成为莱蒙都会这一超大型的国际商业街区。

      京杭大运河开掘于春秋时期,完成于隋朝,繁荣于唐宋,取值于元代,疏通于明清。主要经历三次较大的兴修过程。到隋朝,隋炀帝动用几百万人,开凿贯通了大运河。经唐宋发展,在元代形成沟通海河、黄河、淮河、长江、钱塘江五大水系,贯通南北的交通大动脉。京杭大运河是活着的、流动的重要人类遗产。
