Boston Common, Spring
Boston

As America’s oldest park, Boston Common has a rich history and a special place in New England heritage. Established in 1634, the 50 acre Common was an area of land specifically designated as owned by and for the use of the people of Boston. During the American Revolution, the British garrisoned troops here for eight years. Cows were allowed to graze the Common until 1830. It has been the site of famous public speeches, demonstrations, a papal mass, celebrations and even executions.

Today, Boston Common includes a frog pond providing skating in winter and a  summer time children’s spray pool, ball fields, a tot-lot, walking paths, monuments and memorials. It continues to be an important place for free speech and public gatherings.

The black Brewer Fountain in the foreground of the panorama is a work from 1868 by Paul Lienard with satues by Mathurin Moreau. Amphitrite, Poseidon, Acis and Galatea are the figures depicted at the base of the fountain. The image, made on an early spring day, shows the Park Street Church with its tall spire to the left of Brewer Fountain. Tremont Street is to the east, behind the fountain. The Massachusetts State House, with its golden dome, is to the north, just outside the Common.

More About 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.
