Acorn Street is often referred to as the ‘most photographed street in the United States’. It is not hard to see why. The cobblestones and narrow street take you back to a much simpler time. This street historically housed the coachmen for the more wealthy elite in Boston who resided nearby mansions on Mount Vernon and Chestnut Street. However, today this is one of the more desirable locations in all of Boston. Contained in the very affluent Beacon Hill neighborhood that is walking distance to Boston Garden and Boston Common it is not hard to see why. It is also nicely nestled between the downtown area, Fenway Park and Cambridge so hoping on the ‘T’ in Boston Common gets you to each of those locations in a matter of minutes.
Photo of the Day – Cobblestones
I’ll be heading to the East in October again this year but this time it will be for a few days in Philadelphia. I’ll have to do my research to see what is photographic there because it is a city that I’ve never known to much about outside of it being the centerpoint for one of the best shows on TV in the past few years – “Always Sunny in Philadelphia”. I hope that is the case when I’m there because nothing spoils my good time like rain (or hopefully not snow that early).
