Having come to Boston to go to art school, I found the place was more like a large town but with all the amenities of a larger city. With a vibrant 'modern' history dating back to the early European settlers and the American Revolution, Boston developed into a world-renowned and respected city for its financial and academic institutions as well as its reputable healthcare, biotech, and hi-tech sectors along with it arts, and culture institutions fueled by a regular influx of college students, and of course a love for the local professional sports teams: New England Patriots, the Boston Red Sox, and the Boston Bruins.
Created by immigrants and diverse cultures, Boston is not without its problems but as a progressive community of diverse peoples who continue to responsibly address and solve its social and economic disparities.
The major problem I have with Boston is that Winter here last 3 months too long. By mid-March, we are definitely ready for warmer days and looking forward to spending time on the local beaches which surround Boston and its northern and southern coastlines.
