Billion Dollar SmokestackOn another hand, as one of the 3 notable skyscrapers in Boston, it's extremely mundane. I've been conditioned to love the Pru's weirdness, and Hancock is just plain nice. Dalton is essentially flat and the triangular plan does nothing to it's reflective qualities. Just some plain obelisk (sitting right near some tiny brownstones...). And I don't necessarily have an issue with more minimal design, it's just minimal to the point of boredom without any other fabric of towers to absorb it. I'd put Hancock on the other end of minimal but interesting.
From Mission Hill, there are 2 good spots for Boston skyline pics and other good ones for Longwood/Cambridge pics.can i make a skyline shot request? i lived on mission hill for 3 years and as hard as i tried, i was never able to get a good view of the skyline from the top. all views are owned by apartments or blocked by them.
always thought New England Baptist Hospital would have the best skyline view, but obviously you can't just go in and ask to look out the window to take photos. anyone got any skyline shots from mission hill?
Thanks for this! I have, however walked through that apartment parking lot and while you can kind of see a cool view in the skinny opening between the buildings, it's not a full view. Thanks for the suggestions and for sharing your great pics.From Mission Hill, there are 2 good spots for Boston skyline pics and other good ones for Longwood/Cambridge pics.
Kevin W. Fitzgerald Park has some stunning angles:

Then there's near the hospital on Parker Hill Ave:

The last key spot is going into the parking lot of the Parker Hill Apartments here. If you click in the link you can see the skyline between the buildings. There's a better view if you position yourself correctly in the lot:
