Product Details

From Lexington and Concord to the USS Constitution, Boston's place at the epicenter of American history is a heritage we all share. And yet Boston's legacy is as much a product of successive waves of immigration as it is of colonial times and revolution, whether the North End (Boston's Little Italy) or Chinatown. Boston Icons illustrates the quintessential symbols that make Boston so fascinating and unique. Profiled here are fifty classic symbols of this extraordinary city, revealing little-known facts, longtime secrets, and historical legends. From Boston Harbor and the Massachusetts Institute of Technology to the Paul Revere House and Quincy Market, here's the inside story about the very things that give this city its character.
