World Cup at City Hall

Panorama of World Cup viewing at Boston City Hall

Above is a panorama I took at Boston City Hall today. I was there to watch the World Cup championship between Italy and France. The panorama is not 100% perfect, but I didn’t have the time to mess around with it too much. You can find some ghosts in it, but it basically captures the day pretty well. Click on the image to see a larger view.

As for the viewing of the game at City Hall, there was a really good turnout and it was a lot of fun. It was good to see that soccer could draw a big crowd, although the interest was somewhat increased because of Boston’s Italian population. Kudos to Boston Mayor Tom Menino (an Italian-American) for making it happen. I hope Boston will try it again in 2010 even if it’s Ghana vs Brazil!

New York photos

I posted some pictures from a recent long weekend in New York where I did a little World Cup viewing and chowing of some quality food among other things. The pictures are from all over Manhattan and a few from Brooklyn. Stops included the Empire State Building, Brooklyn Heights, Washington Heights, various soccer bars and a few places inbetween.
