    The reflecting pool, designed by the firm of renowned architect I.M. Pei, is so large that the curvature of the Earth had to be taken into account to keep water from spilling over the sides!

    I have been sailing my radio control ship models since 1969 Have some great photos of friends and family in the fountain other the years Word is the reflecting pool will become a ice skating ring.

    My favourite spot in all of Boston. Hint: for a great foto, just sit down on the side walk and get a neat angle on the water in the reflecting pool

    A breathtakingly serene and beautiful spot in the middle of the city. Soak in all the architectural beauty Boston has to offer.

    Keep your hands, feet, children or pets out of the reflection pool... It's recycled sewage water. Just saying.

    Beautiful. I know it's a church, but it has a very romantic energy.

    Walk through the fountains near the Prudential Tower to cool off on a hot summer day.

    It's not recycled sewage water. It used to be the air conditioning for the Church.
