Quincy Market Boston with a video clip of the Front Entrance near Faneuil Hall in Downtown Boston North End Massachusetts MA – http://www.travellinksdirectory.com/links/boston.htm – The following Wikipedia articles cover details about this famous, and still popular shopping restaurant – “Quincy Market is a historic building near Faneuil Hall in downtown Boston, Massachusetts. It was constructed 1824–1826 and named in honor of Mayor Josiah Quincy, who organized its construction without any tax or debt… By the early 1970s, Boston’s meat and produce had moved to larger, more modern facilities and Quincy Market was decaying. Using a combination of public and private financing, the architectural firm Benjamin Thompson and Associates and the developer Rouse Company developed a new building form, the festival marketplace. The new Faneuil Hall Marketplace, incorporating Quincy Market, opened in 1976. In 1977, it received the Harleston Parker Medal and in 2009, the AIA’s Twenty-five Year Award. The main Quincy Market building continues to be a source of food for Bostonians, though it has changed from grocery to food-stall, fast-food, and restaurants. It is a popular and busy lunchtime spot for downtown workers. In the center, surrounding the dome, is a two-story seating area.” The article link is on http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Quincy_Market
