Despite building many large business and office complexes in the 1960s and 1970s, such as the tall John Hancock Tower, the central parts of the city still have many narrow and crooked streets. Narrow Washington Street is still one of the main shopping streets. West of the city center are some of the most attractive residential areas, Beacon Hill and Back Bay, with typical architecture from the first and second half of the 19th century respectively.

Boston Common and the large Franklin Park with a zoo are among the city's most famous parks. Several bridges connect Boston with Cambridge and the other suburbs north of the Charles River.

History

After the Massachusetts Bay Company was founded in 1630, Boston became the cultural and financial center of the expanding colony. The town was built on the Shawmut Peninsula and got its name from Boston, England, from which several of the colonists came, including Governor John Winthrop and their first husband Isaac Johnson. The city played a leading role in the events culminating in the American War of Independence.

Already in 1770 there was a rally against the English soldiers (the Boston Massacre). On December 16, 1773, the famous casting of English charges at the Boston Tea Party took place, and on June 17, 1775, the first major blow occurred on Bunker Hill in Charlestown. March 17, 1776, Washington entered Boston. After the revolution, Boston became the cultural and intellectual center of the United States.

The strong industrialization until the mid-19th century led to a deterioration of social conditions. A large working class developed, and most of them were Irish immigrants who came after the great famine of the 1840s. By the end of the American Civil War, Boston was the fourth largest industrial city in the country. At the same time, the city lost its cultural leadership to New York.

The importance of the city diminished during the first half of the 20th century, and Boston, after World War II, had major housing problems with a significant slum. The federal authorities have provided special emergency funds, and the city has significantly improved its financial situation in recent decades, including through the development of a new high-tech industry based on the vast expertise available in the area.
