Gov't Center Garage, and yes, it was.

Though it is a very neat photo!

Correct. These are new light fixtures on the North side of E Berkley under I93. Can't wait to see them at night.

No, it's one block south of the new park and in between two new parking lots built under I93 a couple of years ago. They are really cleaning up this whole area under I93. Once a waste land, construction dump site, improvised homeless shelter, and private parking for government hacks is becoming a safe and useful place for the residents of the neighborhood. (I'll step down from my soapbox now.)

The SAXON letters above can be found in Lynn. From what I can tell, it's the original sign that was outside the theater in Boston, now the Cutler Majestic Theater. Exciting!

Big props to anybody who figures out where these were taken from. Hint: public but obscure.

It certainly is. I never heard of the place until last weekend but highly recommend it. It's pretty small, but a nice woodsy area in Weston surrounded by Newport-type mansions!

Re: Where am I? The photo contest

I've had three offices in the square and have been dodging bike couriers in that park for the better part of a decade -- bit of a competitive edge on my end
