Fantastic Creatures

in the City


City Sites

Tours of historic areas and buildings of Boston do exist, however, with little reference to this curious realm of quiet, yet spectacular, creatures looking from above into our city.


With this closer look, visitors discover how these surprising and imaginative architectural features help organizations and businesses communicate their place and meaning in the community.  


Self-guide Map

Fantastic Creatures in the City

is open to the general public during the pandemic through online resources. The first self-guided tours will concentrate on Boston neighborhoods that have easy access for group and family urban outings.
