", standing tall at 751 feet (229 meters), was built in 1947. There is a covered observation deck on the 50th floor, offering gorgeous view of sunny 

Boston

Not far from Holy Trinity Church, on the opposite side, is the New Old South Church that was built in 1729. It has an interesting architectural style and decoration. Inside, you can see beautiful stained glass windows.

Near the Prudential Center, there is the Christian Science Center Complex. It was created in the late 19th century by New England resident, Mary Baker Eddy. The idea behind it is as follows: the Christian doctrine and faith in Christ help people recover from physical and mental wounds. So, this is regarded as a science, a kind of alternative medicine. The Church has branches in 70 countries around the world, and its main headquarters is located in Boston.
