Boston Skyline from the Red-Line

From Park Street outbound to Alewife, the Red-Line T comes above ground at the Charles / MGH station, goes across the Longfellow Bridge and then dips back in the tunnel at MIT.

On beautiful days, countless sailboats bob on the Charles River.

Enjoy the best of Boston!
