Charles Street MBTA Station


Here is a view of this station from a different angle, and here is one inside. This photo was taken a couple of weeks ago, we don't have nearly as much snow left on the ground and what is left is a dirty gray. Have a great weekend everyone.

Such interesting contrasts in architecture, signage, and lighting. What a good study.

I'm really glad you posted this one in color. I think the patch of blue sky and the green tinted glass is how the architect envisioned it . . . but what do I know. I like this exterior view best.

I concur with brattcat . . . nice study.

Thanks for this photo! This shows how an ugly T stop can become beautiful and inviting. My first year in Boston, 1984, I lived on Phillips Street and used this T stop often. Any idea who the architectural team might be?

I have been here before but didn't appreciate the architectural beauty of the building then. But that probably had something to do with the fact that I had just been taken on a walking tour of Boston starting at Government Center through the state house and down through Beacon Hill on a 90 degree day with 80% humidity, and I am from Seattle so I am not used to that kind of weather. All I could think about when we got to the Charles St. station was, "I hope it is air-conditioned."
