Here's a good Moot Court topic: Which city is preppier - Boston or Cambridge?
On our most recent visit to Boston and Cambridge, walking around looking for signs of Spring, we found ourselves debating the merits of both cities. At the end of the day, we mulled the apples to oranges comparison of, in terms of architecture, public space, stores, contribution to and acknowledgement of history, and general tone, which city is preppier?
Here are some images from (and exhibits for) each, which we took over the weekend. Please vote for your favorite in the poll.
Exhibits for Boston:
|There is the always lovely Public Garden.|
|A walk up Beacon Street...|
|...took us past the Massachusetts State House on the way to King’s Chapel Burying Ground.|
|Boston has Brooks Brothers and other Newbury Street stores.|
|First Church in Boston|
Exhibits for Cambridge:
|Harvard Square's J. Press|
|The Andover Shop|
A 10th great grandfather
|Cambridge, of course, has Harvard.|
Addendum 2: Here are the final results of the poll:
