Boston Back Bay Photo Gallery

Historic Background

Once a low-lying harbour basin flooded at high tide, Back Bay was created by a landfill project in the 19th century that took some 50 years to complete. Today, Back Bay is a tree-lined neighborhood of beautiful houses and bounded to the north by the Charles River and the high-end retail of Newbury Street to the south.

The following photos were mostly taken from Commonwealth Avenue, a wide boulevard with a tree-filled park separating the west- and east-bound traffic.
