Prudential Tower…Oh the Views

prudentials-top-of-the-hub-

The Prudential Tower began construction in 1960 with steel erection work by Donovan Steel. Upon its completion in 1964, the Prudential was the tallest building in the world outside of New York City, surpassing the Terminal Tower in Cleveland, Ohio.

Today, the Prudential is no longer even among the fifty tallest buildings in the USA in architectural height.

What a difference a few years make in history!

Don’t be put off by the very formal entrance past a security check in the foyer on the way to the lift.

Once you are up there the views of Boston are amazing.

So glad we didn’t skip this attraction. The views were incredible!

Being in the heart of the city, I was amazed to see the cruise ships nearby!

Great way to see all the places you’d visited & even fun for the kids!

Enjoy a reasonably priced drink and lunch at a table and take in the view.

The restaurant, The Top of the Hub, occupies the 52nd floor.

Here is what I ordered…

Turkey Club
Hot House Tomatoes,
Applewood Smoked Bacon,
Chipotle Mayonnaise, House Chips

Oh yea, the yummy drink off to the right…a lemon drop martini. So delicious!

The Prudential Center Courtyard is beautiful and relaxing place to be…when you are all done visiting the tower.

Well, we just finished another installment of our vacation in Boston.

Hope you enjoyed it?

  2. I once tagged along to a conference with the hubby and while the attendees were ‘working’ I got to talking to another wife who happened to be a travel agent. When I asked her, “what’s your favourite city in America to visit?” without hesitation she said, “has to be Boston”. It took me back a tad, because Boston isn’t exactly on the radar for holiday destinations. But I can see, it’s really beautiful and green.

  3. I have never visited Boston, but you are giving me such a great tour! Seems like a lovely way to spend the day. The lunch looks great, too! Many of my favorites listed!

  4. I love cityscapes {you can take the girl out of the city … etc.} of any kind but I particularly like those taken from the top of skyscrapers. Yours are fantastic!

  5. Love, love, love these vistas of Boston…so beautiful…a city that is definitely on my list — and I love heights as you know so I’ll be checking this out. Hope they’re still serving that sandwich and martini! Thanks, my dear!

  6. .. Forgot to say lunch looks yummy what with your own personal cocktail shaker@ the table and those views … a *wow* experience !

  7. Beautiful photographs Laurie! I am all in on the martini and that sandwich looked so delicious! I love going on little vacations like this, oh the pics you can get. By the way, it is snowing here today in Cleveland, OH. (3-5 more inches are to arrive later today) Ug.

  8. Lovely presentation, Laurie, enjoyed the view very much. Your lunch…aaaaah I could bite into it right here, it loooks more than yummy, I’m starving, I think. 🙂

  9. Love that birds-eye view Laurie! Your posts on Boston have me itching to return (it’s been too long since I’ve been,… and it was in the winter with a foot of snow!). Your lunch looks scrumptious, love the idea of a mid-day martini 🙂

Please share your thoughts...and thank you for the love!
