I thought it could be fun for people to post kind of obscure photos and have people guess where in Boston (or Greater Boston) the photo was taken.

I'll go first:

Fuck you Pelham!

I've had this idea in my head for years, I've just been too lazy to follow through.

So...thanks.

That said, I have no idea where this photo was taken. :confused:

Bingo! Boston02124 wins. You're looking at the former Hard Rock building, The Clarendon, the Old Hancock, and the dead give-away... 500 Boylston with the arched window and concrete ball adornments on the podium roof.

Here's another from the same garage:

It's definitely a view of Kendall, and I don't see the river so probably somewhere in Cambridge... someone else finish this one off

No, I'm reasonably sure it's 200 Clarendon, maybe a little higher than the 5th floor though. Those are obviously the two spires on the western side of Trinity.

I didn't take the pic, so I'm not exactly sure, but it's around the 8-10th floor of the Hancock Tower, looking out towards Cambridge. Here's the full picture that I used for the crop-job:



Doesn't somebody else want to join this thrilling game? The suspense is killing me.

commuter guy in a record 18 minutes! Excellent work.

For bonus points...do you know the address and owner of the building in question?

I've been thinking about this one for awhile... I think I know it but I'm not going to guess yet.

At first I thought it was Avenir, but now I think it's something else...
