A Special Letter from the Mayor of Boston March 24, 2014

On behalf of all the people who call this great city home, I welcome you to Boston. I am honored to have the opportunity to lead this world-class city as Mayor. The home of top colleges and universities, dynamic businesses, and cutting-edge research institutions; the future of Boston is bright. From grand art museums to cozy neighborhood restaurants, we are many places and one community. I invite you to explore the many cultural events and installations we have throughout Boston this summer. Artists, dancers, musicians and actors from all around will bring Boston to life and I invite you to take part in one of the many festivals we have coming to the city. Between the Boston Arts Festival, Caliente!, and the Foreign Film Festival there will be something for everyone to enjoy. Moving forward, there are big plans for the future of tourism and cultural activities in Boston. Nightlife is expanding; through growing transportation infrastructure and collaborating with businesses we are broadening an already impressive entertainment industry. The establishment of a cabinetlevel position for the arts will introduce a new spotlight on cultural programming and policy in Boston. I am thrilled to have you here and I hope you enjoy the sights and sounds of Boston as much as I do.

Martin J. Walsh, Mayor of Boston

Artstravaganza

There’s never a shortage of artistic happenings in Boston, and the city’s creative community is on steroids during the bi-annual ArtWeek. Scheduled for April 25–May 4, ArtWeek Boston is a city-wide celebration of culture with events ranging from story slams to art exhibits to film festivals. Highlights from the first few days of ArtWeek include an “Explore the Score” event with Boston Lyric Opera music director David Angus, a free Boston Ballet workshop series, an Emmanuel Music Bach Cantata Open Rehearsal and a fashion photography workshop with Younes Sphinx Photography. See the full lineup at artweekboston.org.

Marathon mementos

After the tragic events at last year’s Marathon, a makeshift memorial popped up at the police barricade on Boylston Street and later at Copley Square. With heartfelt letters, flowers, banners and running shoes, Bostonians and visitors alike shared their love and support. The memorial was dismantled in June, and thousands of objects—down to the tiniest scrap of paper—were transferred to the Boston City Archives. Now you can see a selection at the Boston Public Library’s McKim Hall called Dear Boston: Messages from the Marathon Memorial. In addition to the exhibit, which is on view through May 11, the library is hosting a panel featuring Boston Globe reporters Scott Helman and Jenna Russell, authors of Long Mile Home: Boston Under Attack, the City’s Courageous Recovery, and the Epic Hunt for Justice, on April 17. And on April 19, photographer Joshua Touster shares his experiences covering the aftermath of the bombings.

Late Night T Party

For far too long, Boston’s night owls have had to navigate the city without the help of public transportation in the wee hours of the morning—but that’s all changed. The MBTA is running a one-year pilot program offering late-night service on the T, with the last trains leaving at 2:30 a.m. on Friday and Saturday nights and 1 a.m. Sunday through Thursday. The idea is to make the city a more convenient place to live, work and play for everyone from students to entrepreneurs to service industry workers. The later hours will only remain in place if people take advantage of them, so go ahead— stay out late this weekend.

Etched in Ink

Looking for a way to express his emotions after the Boston Marathon bombings, photographer Chris Padgett decided to get inked—and he wasn’t the only one with that idea. When he realized how many other people were getting Bostonthemed tattoos to commemorate the tragedy, he started documenting their body art. One year later, he’s unveiling Bled for Boston at the Boston Center for Adult Education (122 Arlington St.), where he works as an instructor. The exhibit includes portraits of 75 people, including MBTA Transit Police officer Dic Donohue, who was injured during a shoot-out with the bombing suspects, and Marathon Sports’ Dan Soleau. The photos are on view throughout the month of April. Visit bledforboston.com for more details.

TICO Freshens Up

It would be easy enough for a restaurant to rest on its laurels after being named one of the best new eateries in America by Esquire magazine, but Back Bay hot spot Tico (222 Berkeley St.) continues to innovate with a revamped menu and a new chef. Tico founder, James Beard Awardwinner Michael Schlow, has brought on Leo Asaro as the restaurant’s new executive chef. The menu maintains its focus on small plates influenced by Latin flavors, yet several of the mainstays have been reimagined, and there are plenty of newcomers as well, such as razor clams ceviche with pineapple, horseradish and cilantro; sweet corn with smoked bacon, jalepeños and Thai basil; and rustic roasted golden beets with pistachios, capers and spicy yogurt.

The story was published in July 1964, 8 months after the President‛s assassination, as a special tribute to him. Perhaps it was inevitable that the vigorous, young President who made physical fitness a national priority would join forces with the red-caped, comic book hero whose feats of super-human strength so captured the popular imagination.

PANORAMA’s GUIDE to

The Boston Eleven landmarks along the venerable course to help you make the most of Marathon Monday. By Erica Jackson Curran

Mile 1: Starting Line

Historic Hopkinton’s Main Street has been the site of the Boston Marathon starting line since 1925. The terrain is mostly downhill until Ashland.

Mile 22: Brighton

Runners pass through the heart of Brookline, including Coolidge Corner.

Panorama

Look for the bulky brick clock tower in Ashland, a.k.a. “Clock Town,” where the electric clock was invented by Henry Warren in 1918. This is also where the Marathon began from 1897–1924.

Mile 21: Heartbreak Hill

The crowd of spectators starts to thicken as runners near the city, passing through Cleveland Circle as they turn onto Beacon Street. It’s all downhill from here.

Miles 23–24: Brookline

Miles 2–4: Ashland

Runners scale seven different hills in Newton, including Heartbreak Hill. The Young at Heart statue at the base of the final hill represents John Kelley, who competed in 61 Boston Marathons before his death in 2004. Boston College students cheer on runners at the top of the hill.

Mile 25: Fenway

The Citgo sign in Kenmore Square signals that there’s only one mile left to go. top left photo: Fayfoto/boston; top right photo: margarita Polivtseva; middle right photo: Lorianne DiSabato; bottom left photo: Della Huff


Marathon Miles 5–7: Framingham

In 1907, a freight train blocked the route in Framingham, creating a log jam of marathoners. Today, runners use the 1885 train depot (designed by H.H. Richardson) as a landmark.

Miles 16–17: Newton

At the picturesque red brick Newton Fire Station, runners make their first big turn from Washington Street onto Commonwealth Avenue.

Miles 8–11: Natick

The route passes over scenic Lake Cochituate before entering Natick, which comes from a Native American word meaning “place of hills.” Not surprisingly, the terrain gets more challenging in this area.

Miles 12–15: Wellesley

Runners pass through the Screech Tunnel—created by a gaggle of screaming Wellesley University students— before hitting the halfway point in the town’s center.

Mile 26: The Finish Line

The blue-and-yellow painted finish line sits beside the Boston Public Library on Boylston Street. top photos: margarita Polivtseva; Middle left photo: Austin Rodrigues; bottom photo: FAyfoto/Boston

Bond of Brothers JP and Paul Norden open up with Twice As Strong

Brothers JP and Paul Norden were cheering on a friend at last year’s Boston Marathon when the bombs went off. Standing directly beside the blast, the brothers—and Paul’s girlfriend Jacqui—were severely injured. Both JP and Paul ended up losing part of their right legs. A year later, the Nordens are sharing their story in a book called Twice As Strong: 12 Seconds, Two Brothers, and the Marathon that Changed Their Lives. “The book is our journey from the start of April 15, 2013 to months later in our recovery,” Paul (pictured above left) explains. “You will hear from not only my brother 12

and I, but our first responders, doctors and nurses, and family and friends. It gives intimate details about that Monday night, my week in a coma, my brother and my emotional reunion after two weeks apart, and how I proposed to my girlfriend, Jacqui Webb.” The Stoneham, Massachusetts natives have been brought closer than ever during their rehabilitation process. “Of course it helps going through it knowing my brother understands this lifestyle and what I’m dealing with,” Paul says. “Sometimes we give each other advice on the little things that the physical therapists don’t teach you— or if one of us finds an easier way to do something, we share that.” For Paul, acclimating to wearing a prosthetic has been difficult, but he’s getting used to it. “Adjusting to life as an amputee, I do mostly everything I did before, but some things are more challenging and very few are off-limits,” he says. “The first time I did the stairs using my prosthetic correctly was a milestone. Also, showering with my waterproof leg, standing in the shower after eight months of sitting brought tears to my eyes.” The brothers, both construction workers before the blast, have also had to adjust to being recognized more frequently. “It’s touching knowing that I may inspire someone else’s life,” Paul says. “A big moment for me was when a little girl—who had a hard life—asked for a picture with me in a local restaurant saying I inspired her to be strong. That’s something I will never forget.” Photo: Global Click PHotography

Taking the Mystery Out of Boston History

The boston maratHon

T

he Boston Marathon began its trek through the streets of the city in 1897, making it the oldest annual marathon in the world. Though the race originally started in Ashland, it was moved in 1925 to the corner of Ash and East Main streets in Hopkinton in order to conform to new Olympic standards set by Queen Alexandra and King Edward VII of the United Kingdom. Over the years, many notable runners have conquered the challenging course. Nina Kuscisik became the first woman to legitimately complete the Boston Marathon in 1971, though there were stealth entrants before her: Roberta Gibb ran without an official entry in 1966, and Katherine Switzer registered under the ambiguous name of “K.V. Switzer” and ran without anyone realizing she was a woman until the race had begun, at which point the Boston Athletic Association attempted to physically remove her from the race. Rosie Ruiz jumped into the race a mile before the finish line in 1980 to become the winner, a title which was later revoked and given to Jacqueline Gareau after officials had looked over the surveillance tapes. John A. Kelley (pictured above, bottom right, in 1935) and John J. Kelley—unrelated, and distinguished as “The Elder” and “The Younger”—were also beloved repeat-runners, the former competing in the Boston Marathon a record 61 times, and the latter being the only runner to win both the Boston Marathon and the Mount Washington Road Race. A statue of Johnny the Elder resides in Newton about a mile from

Heartbreak Hill, so named because of his neck-andneck race against Ellison “Tarzan” Brown in 1936. Tarzan won the race after overtaking Kelley on what was then “Newton Hill,” later renamed by a reporter because Tarzan “broke Kelley’s heart.” Tarzan Brown (pictured top, second from left, in 1939) is probably best known for jumping into Lake Cochituate midrace in 1938, though he was also the first to best the two-and-a-half-hour precedent when he won in 1939. The Boston Marathon was the first marathon to include a wheelchair division, and in 1975, Bob Hall became the first wheelchair competitor to finish the race, paving the path for many more to come. In terms of modern-day Marathon staples, Team Hoyt is certainly the most ubiquitous and probably the most beloved duo. Team Hoyt is made up of Rick Hoyt, who has cerebral palsy and uses a wheelchair, and his father Dick. After Dick discovered that Rick had a passion for sports, he entered them into the Boston Marathon for the first time in 1982, pushing his son along the 26-mile, 385-yard track. They have participated every year since. Dick, now 73, has said the 2014 Boston Marathon will be the last for him and his son, who is now 51. The 2014 Boston Marathon is solidifying its own place in the history books with an expanded field of runners—up to 36,000 from last year’s 27,000. However, the record still belongs to the 1996 100th Boston Marathon, which drew 38,708 entrants. —Petra Raposo

beacon hill An old-world feeling awaits you in this quaint part of the city

S

trolling along Beacon Hill’s picturesque gas-lit streets, brick sidewalks and Federal-style row houses, it’s not uncommon to feel as though you’ve travelled back in time. Both eminently posh and utterly accommodating, this area has borne witness to much of the city’s storied past. The State House—with its gleaming gold dome—sits on the peak of the hill where the beacon for which the district was named used to reside. In this neighborhood, visitors can also find the African Meeting House, which holds the Museum of African-American History, as well as the Bull and Finch Pub, the inspiration for the popular TV show, “Cheers.” Charles Street, located at the flat of the hill, is lined with boutiques, restaurants, cafes and charming hotels. Locals descend the hill daily to enjoy all that Charles Street has to offer, adding to the feeling of small-town charm.

Back Bay This famous neighborhood is truly the hub of the Hub

E

xquisite architecture and world-class retailers are plentiful in Boston’s most well-known neighborhood. The Victorian brick and brownstone residences that line the streets are not only beautiful, they’re widely regarded as the best-preserved examples of 19th-century urban design in the United States. Newbury and Boylston streets, where luxury shops vie for space amidst outstanding restaurants, welcome visitors and residents alike. Back Bay is also home to the iconic Prudential Tower, Trinity Church, Boston Public Library, the John Hancock Tower and two sprawling shopping malls connected by a climate-controlled bridge. You’ll also find standout salons, spas, antique shops and galleries throughout. Nightlife thrives in Back Bay as well, where chic hotel bars, world-class restaurants and swanky lounges abound.

Old North Church

NORTH END

Fabulous cuisine, shopping and history are abundant in Boston’s Little Italy

I

talian culture reigns in the North End, Boston’s oldest and busiest neighborhood. The sweet scent of fresh cannoli rises from countless Italian bakeries that populate this district’s narrow cobblestone streets, while the veritable buffet of dining choices will have you wishing there were more than three meals to enjoy in a day. Recently, clothing and home decor boutiques have been setting up shop here, making the North End an even more diverse and desirable destination. Don’t even try to find a parking space—it’s best to hop on the T or walk. If you happen to be strolling The Freedom Trail, you’ll discover three of the North End’s most important historical sites: The Paul Revere House, Copp’s Hill Burying Ground and the Old North Church. Summertime brings people into the streets to celebrate various Italian feasts with music, socializing and, of course, sensational food.

Fenway Park

Fenway

Sports and entertainment take center stage in this exciting area

J

ust south of the Charles River lies Boston’s axis of entertainment, the Fenway neighborhood. What was once a marshy wetland is now a thriving center of nightlife, arts and, of course, Fenway Park, home of the legendary Boston Red Sox. The Fenway district is often referred to as the Kenmore Square area and can easily be accessed from the T’s Green Line. Lansdowne Street, located right next to Fenway Park, is a prime attraction and boasts an impressive number of bars and dance clubs, including the famed Cask ’n Flagon, Boston Beer Works and The Bleacher Bar. If you’re looking for a calmer cultural scene, the Museum of Fine Arts, Isabella Stewart Gardner Museum and Symphony Hall offer a welcome retreat from the hubbub. And if you don’t have time to explore Fenway’s many social and cultural offerings, you can still look up and appreciate Boston’s famed CITGO sign hovering above it all.
