14 October 2018:
Boston, Massachusetts, US:
The Hub of the Universe, in Autumn Colors

By Corey Sandler, Destination Consultant Silversea Cruises

It was a glorious day here in the Hub of the Universe today with bright sun but just enough nip in the air to remind us that summer is gone and winter lures around the corner.

There’s a fine song by Cheryl Wheeler called “Fall Comes to New England” that includes the lovely line, “And trees are Irish Setter Red.”

The colors are pretty chose to peak now.

We went to Boston Market (the real one, not the faux chicken franchise) near the North End for a cuppa chowder. We also some silks of the colors of autumn vegetables: Brussel sprouts, peppers, and apples.

The Red Sox are playing in the baseball League Championship tonight, with Boston’s typical combination of celebration and dread. Go Sox!

Geeks and progressives are gathered in town for HubFest, a celebration of all things new and unusual. And Silver Spirit is docked at Black Falcon terminal for the day.

Fall in New England is a very special time, the trees glowing on reds, yellows, and oranges. Pumpkins and gourds stretch from here to Salem.

Winter? We’ll deal with that later.

The old city of Boston is going through boom times, with massive development of the Seaport district near where our ship is docked including fancy high-rise condos and entertainment.

The redevelopment is simultaneously revitalizing the waterside and erasing the old history of the port. The good news, either way, is that Boston’s downtown and its neighborhoods including the Back Bay, the Fenway, and the Commons have held on to much of their charm and stature.
