Post Office Square Boston

I had some medical appointments in downtown Boston yesterday and stopped at the charming Norman B. Levanthal park in the financial district, shown below. It is built on top of the Garage at Post Office Square, which according to their website has been called “The Garage Mahal” by the Wall Street Journal. On this visit, I opted for a free parking spot on the street, but can attest to the garage’s implied opulence based on numerous other visits.

The fountain/sculpture in the foreground is almost certainly the work of artist Howard Ben Tre, who favors large chunks of cast glass and brass in various configurations. I like his work.

In the background, towards the right is the glass-enclosed Milk Street cafe, which was a cozy place to have a drink out of the rain and to take advantage of their free wireless connection.
