The area around present day Boston was first settled in 1630. The city was incorporated in 1822. Today more than 4 million people live in the Boston metropolitan area. With many colleges and universities (including Harvard) within the city and surrounding area, Boston is a center of higher education and a center for medicine. It’s definately one of the cities that I want to visit in the United States. This photo of the Boston Skyline has been selected as Daily Cool Photo on Running Wolf’s Rant for the 12th of September 2010.
