Life in a snow globe is probably pretty pleasant.
All of the buildings in town somehow look cohesive, the streets are softly lit by gas lamps, tiny evergreen trees sprinkle the landscape, and there’s never a lack of gently floating snowflakes. If you think about it, though, there’s a place just like that fairly close by—Beacon Hill fits the description to a T.
There’s no question about it. Boston’s most charming—and most expensive—neighborhood is definitely a real-life snow globe.
