Boston Street Beats
Every morning I am here in Brookline, I walk from my sister's apartment to my mother's. The architecture is so typically Boston.The façades undulate along the street. The living room typically has the bowed windows. Many of the apartments were built with a window seat that hugs that curve.
Buildings that were built decades apart all have the same rythm. As you walk along, the beat of the buildings pulls you along.
An apartment house from 1900 has a nice conversation with it's neighbor from the 1940's.
I feel that this awareness of how you cooperate with your neighbors is a very Boston trait. I love the mix of individuality and cooperation.
