The Commonwealth Avenue Mall was named as one of the top 10 great places to stand in the shade of historic trees by USA Today. The article reads: “This tree-lined avenue links Boston Common and the Public Garden to the city’s Emerald Necklace park system. ‘It’s the first urban greenway built in the U.S., if not the world,’ Birnbaum says. The nine-block route, developed from 1861-1880, includes formal plantings of elms, sweet gum, green ash, maple and linden.”
