Neighborhood Photo of the Day:

It’s been a phenomenal stretch of clear, sunny days lately. I went up to the Custom House and took this shot of the park and waterfront. By the way, you can go up to the observation deck of the Custom House daily (ex. Fridays) at 2:00 pm ($3 donation) and 6:00 pm ($7.50 incl. a drink).
