Fun Things to Do in Boston

Boston (as well as the area surrounding Boston) is known for its questionably squarey squares: Dudley Square is quite beyond square, and Inman Square is just an oblique intersection. One fun thing to do with them is to abbreviate the word Square ‘Sq.’ and pronounce it /sk/, so that each square sounds like a Russian city (like Novosibirsk and Irkutsk). Thus, traveling down the Red Line, for instance, one gets Davisk, Portersk, Harvardsk, Centralsk, and Kendallsk.
