Neighborhood Photo of the Day:
For a long time, there has been public access ($3 donation to a local charity) to the observation deck at the top of the Custom House Tower every day at 2:00 pm (except Fridays). Now, there is a nightly opportunity at 6:00 pm, although you have to buy a $15 drink at their bar. Still, it’s something to do as a special treat. I had some guests in town for the holidays and brought them up there to get a bird’s eye view of Blink! at Faneuil Hall Marketplace (more on that in a future post).
While we were up there, I captured this night aerial photo of the North End. I didn’t have my tripod with me, so it’s not as sharp as I would have liked but the colors showed up well. You can follow the lights along Hanover Street and see the famous Old North Church spire on the left side. At night, the reflections bounce off Boston Harbor and that’s East Boston in the distance. It was cold up there and you can almost feel the dark, frigid air in the image.
