Boston’s Quincy Market at Faneiul Hall
Although this is not my first trip to Boston, it is the first trip I’ve taken here that was not work-related. I’ve had a few days here, mainly in the downtown area and am more impressed than ever with Boston as a holiday destination. Although the weather is not the best, there’s plenty to see. Once the weather warms up (soon), I’ve think it’s hard to beat the sights. The locale is breathtaking, from its waterfront to its colonial era buildings. Not only that, this town is tourist oriented with activities suitable for all ages. Also, from the New England Aquarium to Boston Commons and beyond, Boston is a walking city although there is alternate tourist transportation.
Today, I spent a few hours in the Faneiul Hall area. Faneiul Hall was originally built in 1742. Gradually over the next century, Quincy Market (1826), the North Market and the South Market were built. This area comprises the Faneiul Hall Marketplace.
The area is home to numerous restaurants of every price range. I enjoyed the Quincy Market which houses dozens of eateries of different cuisines. Although the on-premises seating is limited, I had no difficult finding a place to eat. In better weather you can go outside to eat (and people watch).
There are also lots of shops ranging from global brands like Coach to other shops focused on Boston area goods and souvenirs. This link lists the shops and restaurants located at the marketplace.
The photos were taken with a Leica M8 and two lenses, a Carl Zeiss Biogon 21mm f/2.8 and a Voightlander Super Heliar 15mm f/4.5.
