Commonwealth Avenue Professional Review and Guide
"The long, wide avenues of Boston’s Back Bay are no accident. Built on mud flats, the neighborhood was designed as a showcase for Boston’s wealth, with Commonwealth Avenue the proud centerpiece. From the Eliot Hotel at one end to the statue of George Washington at the other, Commonwealth is the grand face that Victorian Boston built to display its wealth and respectability to the world. It is also the crucial link in the Emerald Necklace series of parks running from Jamaica Plain to Boston Common."
--Robert Todd Felton, Walking Boston (Wilderness Press).
