Boston Massachusetts USA
A small cobblestone side road known as the Blackstone Block. Somehow, despite centuries of urban renewal and re-development efforts, this tiny fragment of Boston’s colonial past has survived. Although now standing several blocks from the waterfront, when the narrow lane was constructed in the early 1700s, the buildings of the Blackstone Block were almost directly on the docks. Multiple landfill projects in the adjacent Mill Creek marshlands extended the waterfront much further into the harbor during the the 18th century, creating much of the area as we now see it.
