Photographer's Note

The best view of Boston is from Cambridge side. Boston and Cambridge are adjacent between each other with Charles river in between.

The tall building on the left is John Hancock Tower. The tall building on the right is Prudential Building.

John Hancock Tower was designed by I.M. Pei. The construction of the building was finished in 1976. It is the highest building in New England. The building is covered with crystal-like geometry glasses by using 10,000 windows. Right after the structure was built, many of the glasses fell because of temperature changes and vibrations of the high wind. The problem has been solved after some expensive fixes. On the 60th floor of the building is an observation deck.

Prudential building was finished in 1964. The height of the building is 750 feet (229 meters). It has 52 floors. There is a restaurant and lounge on 50th floor of this building, named as prudential skywalk. It offers 360 degree panoramic view of the city.

The weather in New England is changing all the time. I was lucky during my entire trip. I caught a thunderstorm the last day of my visit right before I took this picture. Another heavy rain hit Boston half hours after this picture was taken.
