  • A great place to people watch! Loots of open space in the city, blocks from a string of green spaces to be found in the area. Shops line the square and a huge Church sits in the middle(Trinity Church, nationally registered), OLd South Church sits diagonally across form Trinity and oppisite of the Boston Public Library. I live 2 blocks away and spend a couple of hours in copley like its my back yard. It can be occasionally over run with homeless and or tourists.
  • Always something good happening at Copley Square. Boston Public Library . Trinity Church, Old South Church. Farmers Market on Tuesdays. public art. this is a nice place
  • They were having their Farmer's Market when I walked through and it was really fun! I have discovered I really like visiting Boston in the months leading up to July, since everything is so patriotic. It really is amusing.
  • This is a nice little square but what I found most interesting to notice on this place is the contrast of old vs. new. There is a antique chapel on one side of the plaza with a glass skyscraper besides it and the chapel reflected on the other building, it was a impressive sight to see.
  • Pretty square in the middle of Boston's Back Bay. Situated between the historic, Boston Public Library, and the beautiful Trinity Church. Great area to sit at the fountain or lay in the grass and read a book.
