Boston Skyline from Fenway Park
Boston’s Fenway Park has been a local photographer’s favorite spot since it opened. Photographer’s not only like to take pictures of the game in action, but they also like the view of the city from the stands.
Skyline Changes over the Years
When Fenway Park first opened in 1912, the tallest building was the Christian Science Center Church. In the 1960's skyscrapers went up and now you can see the Prudential and the 200 Clariton Street Building. Boston's newest skyscraper, 1 Dalton Street, is still in progress and will be open next year.
