I don’t know very much about the area where I live. I pretty much moved to this area because it was closer to Boston but still not too far away from where I grew up and my family still lives. It’s conveniently located near the commuter rail and the T station. Other than the hospital, the Honda dealership, Wal-mart and a few other places I really have no idea where things are located. I should probably also learn some of the street names.
I’ve always wondered where the closest library was located to my place. A couple weeks ago when I was walking around taking photos of the snowstorm I took a shot of this building. Zooming into the building to see the name on it I discovered it was called the Fogg Library. I thought, great, a library just around the corner. One problem…it’s closed due to renovations. This shouldn’t really be a big deal since I’ve been at my place for over 6 years and haven’t bothered to find the library. Typically, if I want to go to a library I just stop at the Boston Public Library after work. But it’s nice to know that once renovations are done I’ll be able to walk just up the street to find a good book.
I took the shot of this building because I liked the look of it but also thought all the snow piled up in front provided a good image of the amount of snow we’ve seen here. The building was built in 1897 and was added to the National Historic Register in 1981.
