So what if the line went round and round, forming a complete circle at the base of the tower. There was so much to see during the hour we waited to reach the lift that, for once, I didn’t feel the pain. For the entire ground floor is adorned with floor to ceiling murals painted in 1934 by a group of artists employed by the Public Works of Art Project, a precursor to the Works Progress Administration (WPA).
They depict life in California during the Depression, with emphasis on the theme of industry and commerce and distinctive touches of leftist political ideas, clearly evident; like on Bernard Zakheim’s “Library” which depicts fellow artist John Langley Howard reaching for a copy of Karl Marx’s ”Das Kapital” (spelled here ”Das Capital”). Touches one is familiar with in Europe, but rather unusual in the States. Perhaps it is true, after all, San Francisco may well be a very European city.

On a clear day, the Skywalk Observatory offers 360° views of Boston. It comes with a fee, of course, but the views are worth it. It was fun to try and spot places we’d already been to and those that we had yet to see, like the MIT on the other side of Charles River and the Harvard far beyond.
Bird’s eye view over Boston.

The panorama from the City Hall Tower observation deck is truly memorable. Accessed via a tiny elevator that can carry only four people at a time (excluding backpacks) there is bound to be a line. This is why timed tickets are required, which can – and in peak season should – be booked in advance).

I could get used to these views.
I think I will.
