Boston Public Garden, downtown, and Beacon Hill at night

Boston Public Garden, downtown, and Beacon Hill at night

Boston has always thought of itself as the shining city on the hill, as it is here, with Beacon Hill and the Capitol to the left, and the tall buildings beyond the Public Garden and Boston Common. The quotation comes ultimately from Matthew 5:14: "Ye are the light of the world. A city that is set on a hill cannot be hid." It was a great favorite with the Puritans.
