EarthCam presents a bird's-eye-view of Boston - a city of culture, sophistication and old world charm. The camera is perched high atop The Prudential Center Tower and offers views of The State House, Boston Common, Fenway Ballpark, The Christian Science Center and the Charles River. In addition, you can take a peek at the traffic on the Salt and Pepper Bridge and the Mass Avenue Bridge.
Boston Common - surrounded by Beacon, Charles, Boylston, Park and Tremont Streets Boston. This 40-acre area is the nation's oldest public park. The land was set aside for public use in 1634 (originally as a cow pasture and training ground). Today, the park tends to be full of sun bathers relaxing and picnicking on the grassy hills during nice weather. The Commons also has a longstanding tradition as a place where demonstrators can exercise their right to freedom of speech.
State House - Charles Bulfinch's magnificent State House, one of the greatest works of classical architecture in America. The neoclassical design is poised between Georgian and Federal; its finest features are the delicate Corinthian columns of the portico, the graceful pediment and window arches, and the vast yet visually weightless dome. The dome is sheathed in copper from the foundry of Paul Revere.
