What travelers say:

From Massachusetts State University in the southern suburbs, we took the oldest city subway system in the United States and soon arrived at the downtown Copley Square (Copley Sqare). The Hancock Building, which is stacked with thousands of mirrors, is on the side of the square. The Trinity Church and the Boston Public Library on the other side really gave us a sense of the colonial era. They are precious here, though not for more than a hundred years. The library inherits the same characteristics of the American public facilities. The interior is luxurious and the decoration of ancient Athens and Rome, as if to cover up the world's lack of cultural connotation of embarrassment.
