    True. You're not called the "new world" for nothing.

    That's because with you people ancient seems to mean "ready to be torn down for another high rise office block" . I live in an area that wasn't even land 200 years ago.

    As if that didn't happen in Europe.

    Of course it did. But, excluding war damage, most European cities of any size have a mix of buildings of the last 250 years or so. Parts of America I've seen it's far easier to tear down something no matter the age and that has been done so very often. Listed building seems to be a term most cities don't know.

    Before listed buildings existed the Euston Arch (built in 1837) in London was torn down in the 60s.



    Absolutely disgraceful. The emblem is still on the old tiling at the underground station. I'd been living in London for a few years before I knew why!



    The two structures either side of the arch remained and now house The Euston Tap (which sells fine beers and ales) and on the other side of the road The Cider Tap (no prizes for guessing what it specialises in). I can highly recommend both to any budding tourists.

    Boston has some lovely old buildings. I really liked that city.
