Hi everyone! My name is Alex. I’m a lifelong Bostonian and I love cities, especially the one I call home. Every week or two I post my observations from a different street corner or other cool spot somewhere in Boston. Careful observation is essential to understand how an urban space functions for the people who use it. I hope that you will join me in exploring the city from this unique perspective and grow to appreciate how much can be learned just from sitting and watching. I would love to hear your comments, questions, and suggestions. Thanks for reading!
