  1. I wonder if that is the Old North Church in the center left.

      I don’t know. Outside of Logan Airport, I’ve never been to Boston even though I’ve always wanted to go because I love history so I don’t know enough about the city to say. New England is the only part of the country I haven’t visited. Thanks for popping in! 🙂

  2. WOW! This is incredible!
