Boston's Neighborhoods: Beacon Hill
- An historic, even iconic neighborhood of Boston, Massachusetts, Beacon Hill is a neighborhood of Federal style rowhouses and is widely known for it's narrow streets, gas lights, brick sidewalks and village like atmosphere. With it's ivy covered fences and lovely gardens, it is widely regarded as one of the most desirable and expensive neighborhoods in Boston.
Named for the location of a former beacon atop the highest point in central Boston, the hill and two nearby hills were substantially reduced in height to allow the development of housing in the area. The entire hill was once owned by William Blaxton, the first European settler of Boston; from 1625 to 1635. He eventually sold his land to the Puritans
Located just north of the Boston Common and Public Garden, Beacon Hill is bounded by the Charles River, Beacon Street and Cambridge Street.
A new station of the MBTA Red Line anchors the north end of the neighborhood, and provides easy commuting options to anywhere in the city and beyond - the perfect neighborhood for those without an automobile.
The Gold leaf of the Massachusetts State House Rotunda adorns the hill and shines across the Common. The lively sport of Massachusetts politics is acted out on the grounds of the State House on a regular basis.
Across from the State House, the Boston Common Frog Pond is a joyful jewel in this historic park. As a reflection and wading pool in the warmer months with a nearby cafe and playground, it transforms into beautiful skating rink during the winter.
Beacon Hill is also home to the real live Cheers bar of TV fame as well as numerous shops, restaurants, professional services, antique shops, apparel stores and boutiques, which dot Charles Street. No WalMarts or Dunkin' Donuts here - Charles Street is filled with unique one of a kind shops and restaurants. These businesses take personal pride in their offerings, with a wide array of food, unusual gifts, apparel and antiques from all over the world. Best of all, you'll very likely be greeted by the store owner for that personal touch! Gary Drug is one of the few independent pharmacies left in America! Whether you need a grocery store, shoe store, or hardware store - it's all within walking distance if you live in Beacon Hill.
For its rich heritage, inimitable architecture and its crucial role in the abolitionist movement, the neighborhood was designated a National Historic Landmark in 1962.
Beacon Hill has been home to many past and present notable residents over the years, including statesmen John Hancock and Daniel Webster; writers Louisa May Alcott, Oliver Wendell Holmes, Sr. and Michael Crichton; senators Henry Cabot Lodge, Charles Sumner, Edward Kennedy and John Kerry; poets Sylvia Plath, Robert Frost, Julia Ward Howe, and Anne Sexton; Supreme Court Justice Oliver Wendell Holmes, Jr.; painters John Singleton Copley and Chester Harding; and actors Edwin Booth and Uma Thurman.
Beacon Hill is home to a wide variety of residential styles. A great place for families, this historic neighborhood offers a blend of classic Boston architecture and expansive green space.
Current housing in Beacon Hill runs the gamut from tiny studio apartments, to grand, single family residences. With the earliest houses dating back to the late 1700s, and new condominiums such as the Tudor, 34.5 Beacon, 50 Beacon and The Amory, and 96 Beacon which offer modern, luxury amenities (some are doorman buildings) along with restored period detail and oftentimes with beautiful views of the Common and the Garden, there is something for everyone in Beacon Hill.
The holidays are an especially beautiful time in Beacon Hill. In fact, it feels like you just went back to a quieter time - before shopping malls, cars, and the hustle and bustle. The annual holiday stroll draws people from all over the area.
Beautiful Acorn Street is often mentioned as one of the most picturesque (and most frequently photographed) street in the United States. Interesting architectural details, brick row houses with colorful doors, creative door knockers, decorative ironwork, brick sidewalks, narrow streets and real gas lamps make Beacon Hill a feast for the eyes.
Once you visit Beacon Hill, you'll see why many find that just living here to be the best attraction of them all!

Boston, Suffolk, Massachusetts, United States
Boston is the capital and largest city of the U.S. state of Massachusetts, officially the Commonwealth of Massachusetts; Boston also serves as county seat of the state's Suffolk County. The largest city in New England, the city proper, covering 48 square miles (125 square km), had an estimated population of 626,000 in 2011, making it the 21st largest city in the United States. The city is the anchor of a substantially larger metropolitan area called Greater Boston, home to 4.5 million people and the tenth-largest metropolitan area in the country. Greater Boston as a commuting region is home to 7.6 million people, making it the fifth-largest Combined Statistical Area in the United States. One of the oldest cities in the United States, Boston was founded on the Shawmut Peninsula in 1630 by Puritan colonists from England. It was the scene of several key events of the American Revolution, such as the Boston Massacre, the Boston Tea Party, the Battle of Bunker Hill and the Siege of Boston. Through land reclamation and municipal annexation, Boston has expanded beyond the original peninsula. After the coming of American independence the city became an important port and manufacturing center, and a center of education and culture as well. Its rich history helps attract many tourists, with Faneuil Hall alone attracting over 20 million visitors. Boston's many firsts include the United States' first public school (1635), and first subway system (1897). The area's many colleges and universities make Boston an international center of higher education and medicine, and the city is considered highly innovative for a variety of reasons. Boston's economic base also includes finance, professional and business services, and government activities. The city has one of the highest costs of living in the United States, though it remains high on world livability rankings. Boston has an area of 89.6 square miles (232.1 km2) 48.4 square miles (125.4 km2) (54.0%) of land and 41.2 square miles (106.7 km2) (46.0%) of water and is the country's third most densely populated city that is not a part of a larger city's metropolitan area. This is largely attributable to the rarity of annexation by New England towns. The city's official elevation, as measured at Logan International Airport, is 19 ft (5.8 m) above sea level. The highest point in Boston is Bellevue Hill at 330 feet (100 m) above sea level, and the lowest point is at sea level. Situated near the Atlantic Ocean, Boston is the only state capital in the contiguous United States with an ocean coastline. Boston is surrounded by the Greater Boston region and is contiguously bordered by the cities and towns of Winthrop, Revere, Chelsea, Everett, Somerville, Newton, Brookline, Needham, Dedham, Canton, Milton, and Quincy. The Charles River separates Boston from Cambridge and Watertown, and the mass of Boston from its own Charlestown neighborhood. To the east lie Boston Harbor and the Boston Harbor Islands National Recreation Area (which includes part of the city's territory, specifically Calf Island, Gallops Island, Great Brewster Island, Green Island, Little Brewster Island, Little Calf Island, Long Island, Lovells Island, Middle Brewster Island, Nixes Mate, Outer Brewster Island, Rainsford Island, Shag Rocks, Spectacle Island, The Graves, and Thompson Island). The Neponset River forms the boundary between Boston's southern neighborhoods and the city of Quincy and the town of Milton. The Mystic River separates Charlestown from Chelsea and Everett, and Chelsea Creek and Boston Harbor separate East Boston from Boston proper. The city's water supply, from the Quabbin and Wachusett Reservoirs to the west, is one of the very few in the country so pure as to satisfy federal quality standards without filtration. Boston is sometimes called a city of neighborhoods because of the profusion of diverse subsections; there are 21 officially designated neighborhoods. More than two-thirds of inner Boston's modern land area did not exist when the city was founded, but was made by filling over the centuries, notably with earth from the leveling or lowering of Boston's three original hills (the Trimountain, after which Tremont Street is named), and with gravel brought by train from Needham to fill the Back Bay. Downtown and its immediate surroundings consists largely of low-rise (often Federal style and Greek Revival) masonry buildings, interspersed with modern highrises, notably in the Financial District, Government Center, and South Boston. Back Bay includes many prominent landmarks, such as the Boston Public Library, Christian Science Center, Copley Square, Newbury Street, and New England's two tallest buildings the John Hancock Tower and the Prudential Center.

Boston History Part 1
I made this as a cute little video for a friend, but here I give it to you, the public. It is my version of the beginning of the Freedom Trail in Boston. It is a little bit like an amateur drunk history, but I'm not drunk. And it's not expertly done with famous actors backing me.
