REVOLUTIONARY TALES – BOSTON , MASSACHUSETTS – THE BOSTON COMMONS AND THE BACK BAY .

Today  the  four  of  you  are  going  to  visit  one  of  Boston’  s  neighborhood’s ,  the  Back  Bay .

You’re  also  going  to  see  the  oldest  public  parks  in  the  country ,  The  Boston  Commons .

You  remember  that  at  one  time ,  cows  grazed  here  also .

You  look  for  the  statue  of  George  Washington  that  sits  in  the  Public  Gardens  section  of  the  Commons .

After  you’ve  seen  the  statue ,  you  all  walk  over  to  the  neighborhood  that  you  all  couldn’t  afford  to  live  in .

The  Back  Bay ,  which  at  one  time  really  was  a  swampland .

The  other  neighborhood  that  you  all  couldn’t  afford  to  live  in ,  Beacon  Hill .

As  you  all  walk  down  Newbury  Street ,  which  is  considered  to  be  ”  The  Rodeo  Drive  of  Boston  ” ,  you  that  at one  time  you all couldn’t  afford  to  live  here .

All you  all could  do was to  look  at  the  window  displays  at the  stores .

Newbury  Street  now has many  stores  and  eateries  that  the  four  of  you  can afford  to  eat in.

Now  that  some  of  you  are  older ,  some  with  your  own businesses ,  you can  even  afford  an apartment  there ,  let alone  shop til you  drop .

The  four  of  you  have  come  a  long  way  from  your  college  days  as  you leave  another  store .

It’s  time  to  go  and head to  your destination ,  a visit  to  your  old campus ,  Boston  University .
