Along the wharf on the Fort Point Channel is Boston Children’s Museum. Almost 100 years old, the museum pioneered the “hands-on” museum experience for visiting children. The building was originally a wool warehouse and the museum moved there in 1979 when it needed more space and better public access. The museum’s mission is to “help children and families enjoy, understand and become active citizens of the world”.

Standing adjacent to the museum is the Hood Milk Bottle, an ice cream stand and snack bar. Hood is a brand of dairy products in the eastern United States. The original bottle was built in 1933 as an ice cream store in Taunton, Massachusetts and after an interesting history, was donated by the HP Hood Company to the Boston Children’s Museum in 1977. It stands 40 feet high.

To the right of the Hood Milk Bottle, the Congress Street Bridge spans the Fort Point Channel. This 547 foot long bridge is one of a group of unique and historical bridges in the area. The bridge was completed in 1930.

In the foreground in front of the downtown Boston skyline is Fort Point Channel. This is the general area that the famous Boston Tea Party of 1773 took place although the portion of the channel that the event actually took place has most likely been filled and now exists as dry land in downtown Boston, across the channel.

Further to the right the Evelyn Moakley Bridge carries Seaport Blvd. traffic across the channel and beyond that is the Northern Avenue Bridge.

This is an overview of 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.
