Sunday News & Views: Christmas Customs House, Upcoming Meetings and Wine Festival

Neighborhood Photo of the Day:

It seems like we’ve moved quickly from Thanksgiving into the Christmas season. I took this last night just after sunset when the blue sky was perfect using part of the Faneuil Hall tree in the foreground of the Custom House tower.

    That’s a great photo! We lived in Boston for the year of 2006 and really miss it now we are back in Australia. We lived on Commercial Wharf and looked right out to the Customs Clock Tower. Really enjoy reading the daily news from the North End.
