John Hancock

This is the headquarters of the John Hancock Insurance Co. in Boston. Their previous building was the 62 story tower in the Back Bay on Clarendon St. You can see the 62 story glass tower and the original Hancock building in this 2008 picture. Hancock sold the tower in 2004 and downsized to this new building on Congress St. in the Seaport District. More from the Boston Globe.

Food trucks on Belvidere Street

On the street between the fountains of the Christian Science Center and the Prudential Center. Food trucks like these can be found all over the city, which is a good thing for tourists who don't want to spend too much time or money in a restaurant while touring the city; and it's a cheap and easy meal for nearby office workers.
