Hubbub

Police State

Most visitors to Boston hope to avoid a visit to the police station, but there is one shining exception: Precinct Kitchen + Bar (350 Stuart St., 617-532-3827) at the Loews Boston Hotel. Located in the old Boston Police Headquarters in the Back Bay, the recently opened eatery features a modern take on New England cuisine. From Wellfleet clam chowder to Harpoon beer-battered fish ’n’ chips, the menu highlights the catch from local waters along with a selection of classic red meat and vegetarian dishes. The cocktail program includes small-batch brews and creative elixirs, so grab a seat on the patio and sip on the summery Remember the Maine, made with rye, cherry, blueberry and absinthe. Find out more at precinctkitchenandbar.com. —Erica Jackson Curran

Under the Skin

Considering the amount of time we spend with our bodies, it’s insane how little we actually know about them. Remedy that by visiting the Body Worlds Vital exhibit, now on view upstairs at Quincy Market within Faneuil Hall Marketplace. Created by physician and anatomist Gunther von Hagens, the exhibit features real (donated) human bodies preserved through a process called Plastination (invented by von Hagens). While seeing real human bodies in various states of activity can be intriguing and even shocking, the idea is to give insight into the structure and function of both healthy and unhealthy bodies. Learn more by visiting bodyworldsboston.com or calling 866-276-9458. —EJC

Everything is Awesome

If you grew up using Legos to build castles you’d never live in and spaceships you’d never fly—or if you’re still singing “Everything is Awesome” months after leaving the theater—you’ll be excited to know that Boston’s division of Legoland is hosting its grand opening on May 23. Located in Assembly Row, the brand-new neighborhood complex in Somerville, Legoland features two Lego rides, a 4D movie experience and Miniland, a showcase of Lego miniature replicas of Boston’s most famous buildings, including the mini-Boston Public Library that was on display in the Johnson Building of the BPL last month. You can even learn tips for making works of art from master builders. No matter your age, you’ll find plenty of adventure within the plastic brick walls of Legoland. Head to legolanddiscoverycenter.com/boston for more information, including special discounts on annual passes before the grand opening. —PR

Taking the Mystery Out of Boston History

Arnold Arboretum I

n the late 19th century, overcrowding and pollution in urban areas across the U.S. became a major problem for city dwellers. To combat the issue, green spaces were built so residents could escape the hustle and reconnect with nature. In New York, this meant the creation of Central Park. In Boston, a seven-mile-long stretch of greenery connected by parkways was constructed, which came to be known as the Emerald Necklace. The first, and arguably most important, jewel in the necklace was the Arnold Arboretum. Founded in 1872, the Arnold Arboretum was the first public arboretum in North America, and is the second-biggest part of the Emerald Necklace after Franklin Park. The arboretum was named after James Arnold, who donated a portion of his estate to the promotion of horticultural improvements. This donation, combined with Benjamin Bussey’s estate, created the plant sanctuary that resides in Jamaica Plain and Roslindale today.

Panorama

Scientist Charles Sprague Sargent, who was appointed the first director of the arboretum, curated and noted the different species of trees, vines and shrubbery in the area, while Frederick Law Olmsted designed and implemented the road system and plant scheme to blend with the rest of the parks in the Emerald Necklace. Today, the plants within the

arboretum are monitored and documented for research purposes. The landscape is maintained by Harvard University under a 1,000-year lease signed in 1882 between the university and the City of Boston, which maintains the infrastructure. In 1911, the first issue of the park’s quarterly magazine Arnoldia—then titled Bulletin of Popular Information—was published. To this day, the magazine covers ecology, conservation, landscape design and history. It also offers information on the growth and progress of the Arboretum itself, while occasionally profiling overlooked plants and flora. In 1996, the 24-acre Bussey Brook Meadow was added to the grounds, bringing the number of acres in the arboretum to the current total of 281. Through these grounds, a handicap-accessible pathway was built for commuters traveling by public transportation

to the Forest Hills stop. The pathway leads visitors to the South Street Gate of the Arnold Arboretum. The mission of the Arnold Arboretum is to “increase knowledge of woody plants through research and to disseminate this knowledge through education.” In keeping true to this mission, the arboretum hosts educational youth programs, lectures geared toward adult education, fellowships in curating and botany, and activities for visiting families. Harvard University also offers undergraduate and graduate programs that use the Arnold Arboretum as a classroom. The grounds are open to the public 365 days a year from dawn until dusk. Take advantage of walking and bike trails this spring, as well as art exhibits and a horticultural library. For more information, visit arboretum.harvard.edu. —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.

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.

raving an Italian confection? You’ll find no shortage of sweets in Boston’s historic North End, where family-run bakeries have been serving up authentic pastries for generations. —Erica Jackson Curran Cannoli at Maria’s Pastry Shop (46 Cross St., 617-523-1196, mariaspastry.com, pictured): The North End bakeries always seem to be fighting for the right to claim their cannoli as the best in Boston, and truthfully, it’s hard to go wrong with any of them. Maria’s specializes in crunchy fried dough shells that are filled-to-order with traditional sweetened ricotta cheese or chocolate or vanilla cream. Topped with a dusting of powdered sugar, these treats are truly synonymous with the North End. Torrone at Modern Pastry Shop (257 Hanover St., 617-523-3783, modernpastry.com): This classic Italian nougat candy is typically enjoyed around the holidays, but it’s just as tasty year-round. Modern offers a handful of varieties, including classic white torrone (made with honey, sugar, egg whites and nuts), cappuccino torrone (dipped in a blend of milk chocolate and espresso beans) and caramel torrone (caramel surrounded by white torrone enrobed in semi-sweet chocolate). La Sfogliatella at Mike’s Pastry (300 Hanover St., 617-742-3050, mikespastry.com): Known as a lobster tail to English speakers, this historic delicacy dates back to the 16th-century Amalfi Coast. The layered, crusty baked pastry is filled with white or yellow cream, and Mike’s offers a cake version as well. Biscotti at Parziale Italian Bakery (80 Prince St., 617-523-6368, parzialebakery.com): Skip the lines at the better-known bakeries and head off the beaten path to this North End mainstay. The Parziale family came to America from Napoli in 1907, introducing Boston diners to pizza. You can still order pizza by the slice here, or for something a bit sweeter, try one of their many varieties of biscotti, including almond, anise or cinnamon raison with walnuts. Tiramisu at Bova’s Bakery (134 Salem St., 617-5235601, bovabakeryboston.net): A Boston tradition since 1926, this award-winning bakery offers everything from bread to pastries to prepared foods. The Phantom Gourmet voted the bakery’s tiramisu the best in the country, and luckily you can enjoy its creamy, mascarpone-filled decadence anytime you feel like it—Bova’s is open 24 hours a day, seven days a week. above photo: Timothy Renzi
