“One if by land, two if by sea”...and 500 if by puzzle, the pieces of Evie Coates’ unique puzzle map the many routes through Boston. The historical routes reveal a city at the heart of a revolution, bordered by tea filled harbors and monument topped hills. The modern routes highlight the athleticism of marathon runners and the Green Monster of Fenway Park. Place the pieces of the Charles River to see where crew teams row and the Mystic River to see where tall ships sail. Follow the trolleys or the MBTA to see the tourists and commuters. Build the freedom trail through downtown to see the foundations of American democracy and Beacon Street to find a great glass of beer. Each piece provides a glimpse of Boston’s many fascinations. With so many paths to choose, what route will you build first?
