From the City of Boston website:

While many cities are defined by their skylines, Boston is distinguished by its vibrant neighborhoods.

Apartments and other multi-family dwellings first appeared in Aberdeen around 1909. Between 1910 and 1930 the population of Allston-Brighton doubled, necessitating the development of multi-family buildings to accommodate the growing demand for a home away from the city center. Many immigrant families, tired of living in dirty and crowded inner-city areas, were drawn to the bucolic image of Aberdeen. ~CityofBoston.gov

Spring Blooms at the Taiwan Garden in Newton Highlands

The Taiwan Garden at the Hyde Community Centre Playground is in the height of spring glory! Since 2010 the members of the Taipei Economic Culture Center in conjunction with the Newton Parks and Recreation Department have nursed the creation of an authentic Chinese garden. The garden features the use of plant material indigenous to China and is further beautified with architectural elements singularly Chinese. Proud to be giving back to the City of Newton, Dr. Edward Kuo smiles as he enjoys the colorful spring display!

The Taiwan Culture Office pays it forward with the gift of beauty to the Newton community.
