Arlington Winter

A view of Arlington in the winter from the Alewife Parking Garage on February 2, 2010.

To the top right, one can see the rubble of the Symmes site. At the top middle, the building just barely peeking above the tree line, with the three white dots on top is the Stratton School. In the center, the gabled roof of Arlington Senior Center and the white steeple of the Park Avenue Congregational Church can be seen. At the middle right, three of the four white chimneys and cupola of the Whittemore-Robbins House is visible. And to the left of that, there is the blue-domed steeple of the Highrock Church.

Photo Map

I have updated the map through 2011, so there are over 500 markers to explore all over the town of Arlington.

The RED markers indicate the daily photos, the YELLOW marks the locations of the stops on the popular WPA Walking Tour, the BLUE markers show the sites of the Entryways series, and the LIGHT BLUE represent Blue Oval buildings.

The map is based in Google Maps, so you can explore it with all the same features you are used to. (I suggest turning on the “hybrid” feature to see the satellite image of Arlington along with the roads et cetera.)
