Not the oldest part of the city. That honor goes to Beacon Hill, but much of this area dates to the 1800s, some of it a bit earlier. A mix of commercial, cultural, and residential, it provides an interesting look at the architecture of the times.

The area is now known as “Symphony” since it is dominated by Symphony Hall. The Berkeley School of Music is here, music store, other smaller concert and performance venues. It’s very music-centric.

A friend told me she never knows what I’m going to write about. It’s always a surprise. Truth is, I don’t know what I’m going to say until I say it either. I am always surprised. I love my computers and cameras, yet hate cell phones. Go figure. Serendipity is a very apt name. Whatever you aren't looking for, you'll find it here. I'm a reader, a photographer, amateur historian. I've been around a while, so I have an Old Person perspective thing happening. Which doesn't prevent me from having an insatiable hunger for gadgets, electronic toys, and traveling when we can.

    1. Boston is a really nice city … except, as I said, for the insane traffic and parking — lack of parking, really. But it’s a surprisingly nice place to live, too. Unlike New York, it’s a “human size” city. I wish we got there more often. I miss it.
