JP A to Z: V is for Views #AtoZChallenge #JamaicaPlain

V is for Views

This blog is called Panorama of the Mountains, and although I live on a hill in a place named for a plain, I’m always inspired by a good view.

Here are some of my favorite views of Jamaica Plain:

If you go to the far side of Jamaica Pond and look across, the steeples and wood frame houses of Jamaica Plain make it look like a New England village, rather than a neighborhood in a bustling city.


If you go up Green Street towards Glen Road and Franklin Park and look back into the Stony Brook valley, Jamaica Plain looks more like an industrial town of the 19th century.


Jamaica Plain has been a New England village and an industrial town, so these characteristics live on.

Here’s a view many people won’t get to see as it is the view of Forest Hills from the roof of my house:


Finally, a view of the Boston skyline from Peters Hill in the Arnold Arboretum:
