Looking north in this panorama you can see the old Northern Avenue Swing Bridge which passes over Fort Point Channel. This steel truss bridge now serves pedestrian traffic and connects Boston’s downtown financial district to South Boston, traditional site of the city’s commercial harbors and wharves.
To the left, the Boston skyline is dominated by the 600 foot skyscraper at One International Place. This postmodern building is 46 stories high and is in the heart of Boston’s financial district. It is used as commercial office space and is Boston’s fifth tallest building.
Continuing left is a view of the Evelyn Moakley Bridge which carries Seaport Boulevard over the Fort Point Channel. This is a haunched-girder, steel and concrete bridge and is the main thoroughfare for vehicular and pedestrian traffic across Fort Point Channel.
The red and yellow tent covers the outdoor dining space of the Barking Crab restaurant, an immensely popular South Boston eatery. Below the tent, a ramp leads to some of the public boat docks in the channel which allow public access to this historic waterway.

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.
