Unlike people from New Jersey who say that they are from New York City when introducing themselves, I’m from a place where people are proud to say they are from.  I grew up 15 minutes outside the city of Boston, the greatest city in the world.  I used to take the green line into Copley square when I was pretty young to skateboard with my friends and put my feet in the fountains.  When I got older I started going to concerts at the TD Banknorth garden where the Celtics and Bruins play.  You can barely see this building on the lower left of the photograph featuring the Zakim bridge.  By the end of high school I was spiking big gulps from 7-11 and riding the metro in to watch our hockey team compete for the State championship.  I could not have picked a better place to be raised and I am truly blessed.  I guess I’m also spoiled, because I have already witnessed the Patriots, the Bruins, the Red Sox and the Celtics all win AT LEAST one championship each in my lifetime.

The quote I put in “where everybody knows your name, your never left alone” is from a song a buddy of mine wrote.  Obviously everyone doesn’t know your name, it just means that you wont get lost in this city.  It is not a huge city and is fairly segregated in terms of safe areas and risky areas.  There are so many colleges in the city that it is always alive with something to do, and if you are ever lonely, there will be somewhere to go where someone knows your name.  It’s easy to live here, and at the same time, you won’t get bored.

I made this postcard by combining all of my favorite Boston pictures and adjusting the coloring, brightness and saturation as best as I could to have the pictures go well together.
