During fellowship at Mass General I took running clothes to work four or five days a week. Warren Building was fifty yards from a pedestrian bridge from Charles Street to the Charles River Park which led to the Esplanade. The runs of up to eight miles were great ones, even when the weather wasn't. Because of some neuromuscular problems I can no longer run despite successful cardiac surgery. This was a chance to revisit one of my favorite places.
The first is a view of downtown from a different pedestrian bridge leading to the Esplanade. The tall building is the Hancock. When it was first built panes of glass were falling out all over the place. So much for modern engineering. Years later a tile fell out of the roof of a tunnel from the big dig. A woman died when the tile crashed into her car. So much for modern engineering.
