Want to see Boston from Above? Make you way to Prudential Square into Prudential Center and up the Prudential Tower to the Skywalk Observatory on the 50th floor to get some superb views of this beautiful city.
The area surrounding the Prudential Center also offers some interesting architecture and if you feel like posh shopping, there are plenty of options for you to choose from at the center and the streets nearby.
Wikipedia has a bit of intro on the Prudential tower :
The Prudential Tower, also known as the Prudential Building […] is a skyscraper in Boston, Massachusetts. The building, a part of the Prudential Center complex, currently stands as the 2nd-tallest building in Boston, behind the John Hancock Tower.
The Prudential Tower was designed by Charles Luckman and Associates for Prudential Insurance. Completed in 1964, the building is 749 feet (228 m) tall, with 52 floors. It contains 1.2 million square feet (111,484 m²) of commercial and retail space. Including its radio mast, the tower stands as the tallest building in Boston and is tied with others as the 77th-tallest in the United States, rising to 907 feet (276 m) in height.
A 50th-floor observation deck, called the "Skywalk Observatory", is currently the highest observation deck in New England that is open to the public, as the higher observation deck of the John Hancock Tower has been closed since the terror attacks of September 11, 2001.
