OLD NORTH CHURCH (Christ Church)
Get out your history books - here's the Old North Church. Known as "Christ Church in the City of Boston", this Episcopal church was built in 1723 and is Boston's oldest Church building. On the steeple of this church, Robert Newman signaled with lanterns the approach of the British regulars; "One if by land, and two, if by sea".
The steeple is 191 feet tall, making it the tallest steeple in Boston. The bells within the steeple were the first bells ever brought to America. Paul Revere was one of the neighborhood bell ringers. The interior high box pews and brass chandeliers, as well as the Church's first clock are all original. (www.cityofboston.gov)
Just behind the Old North Church lies the Dog Tag Memorial for the fallen American soldiers in the Iraq and Afghanistan Wars. When the wind blows, the tags make an eerie chiming sound...

COPP'S HILL BURYING GROUND
Dates back to 1659. Lots of history here as you might imagine. Copp's Hill Burying Ground is just up the street from the Old North Church. Open the panorama and see if you can find Skinny House - the narrowest house in Boston. More info here.

The first pano is taken from within the first tower which represents the Belzec extermination camp.

ROSE FITZGERALD KENNEDY GREENWAY
On our way up the street to find the Old North Church from Faneuil Hall and Long Wharf we happened upon this. The Greenway is an oasis with the city skyline as a dramatic backdrop. This pano shows one of four parks in the Greenway. It consists of delightful water fountains spouting water for the pleasure of passers by, flowers along the perimeter and a green expanse of grass - all surrounded by bustling city streets on the outside of that perimeter.
LONG WHARF - Boston Inner Harbor
A view from the balcony of the Marriott Hotel overlooking Long Wharf and the New England Aquarium and of course Boston Harbor.
