New Washington Street

In this view looking northeast from the New Washington Street Overpass in the Boston neighborhood of Jamaica Plain, the setting sun reflects off of the glass facade of the John Hancock Tower, located about four miles away in the Back Bay section of Boston.

The tracks on the left are used by the MBTA Orange Line subway. The MBTA Commuter Rail and Amtrak use the tracks on the right, with the overhead catenary supplying power to the high-speed Acela trains. The platform on the lower right is part of the Forest Hills stop on the Commuter Rail's Needham Line.

English High School, the oldest public high school in the U.S., is housed in the red brick building on the right, which was originally owned and occupied by the Boston Gas Company. In the distance, the tall building on the left is the Prudential Tower and, next to it, is 111 Huntington, also known as the R2D2 building.
