Spooks call this place home, and they have the potential of appearing at any time, to any person, at any location.

The Illini Indians once dominated this place, along with the nearby convergence of the Mississippi and Missouri Rivers. All this makes for a great ghostly paradise!
Boston 4K - Seaport District Drive
Saturday afternoon drive around the Seaport District, orSouth Boston Waterfront.
The new home to General Electric (GE) corporate headquarters and global athletic footwear and apparel company Reebok. In a massive renaissance, the area has seen an enormous construction boom in recent years; considered the hottest, fastest-growing real estate market in the country. A two-bedroom apartment can rent for more than $5,000 per month and the purchase cost would be more than $2 million in 2018.
This section of South Boston north has been targeted for massive redevelopment. The Fallon Company is currently developing Boston’s Fan Pier, one of the most sought-after waterfront sites in the United States, and a catalyst for the revitalization of South Boston’s waterfront. Fan Pier is a nine-acre, 21 city block site which consisted largely of underutilized parking lots when the Fallon Company purchased it for $115 million in 2005. Today, it is a neighborhood consisting of four commercial towers – One Marina Park Drive, 11 Fan Pier Boulevard, 50 Northern Avenue, and 100 Northern Avenue – and a luxury condominium tower Twenty Two Liberty. A second residential building, Fifty Liberty, is currently under construction. Two more high-rise towers are planned. When complete in 2020, the $4 billion Fan Pier project will encompass three million square feet of commercial and residential real estate, public, civic and cultural space, including two parks and a 6-acre marina.
According to the Boston Seaport website, the Seaport/South Boston Waterfront has 78 restaurants, 8 hotels, and continues to grow. The Boston Convention and Exhibition Center straddles D Street. The Seaport Hotel and Seaport World Trade Center is located on Commonwealth Pier. A new home for the Institute of Contemporary Art hangs over Boston Harbor just north of Northern Avenue. The Society of Arts and Crafts, New England’s oldest craft-focused nonprofit is situated closeby on Pier 4. The John Joseph Moakley United States Courthouse is on Fan Pier. The South Boston Waterfront, or The Seaport, in a massive renaissance, has exploded in recent years; considered the hottest, fastest-growing real estate market in the country, the Waterfront has seen an enormous construction boom. The Innovation District, as ex-mayor Tom Menino termed it, is now home to tens of new office towers, residential buildings, and innovation labs either proposed or under construction. As of September 2010, the Seaport Square project was also under planning. It was expected to cost $3 billion and replace parking lots between the federal courthouse and convention center with a 6,300,000-square-foot (590,000 m2) mixed-use development. Construction was expected to begin in 2011.
Due to the increase in nightlife in the neighborhood, on-street parking for residents has become increasingly scarce. In response, city officials are launching a 90-day pilot program that will expand resident only parking to seven days a week, from four.
On January 13, 2016, it was announced that GE will be moving its corporate headquarters from Fairfield, Connecticut to the South Boston Waterfront. GE ranks eighth on the Fortune 500 and will become the largest publicly traded company based in Massachusetts.
According to the Boston Globe, a two-bedroom apartment in the Seaport area can rent for more than $5,000 per month and the purchase cost would be more than $2 million in 2018.
In November 2016, the global athletic footwear and apparel company Reebok announced they would be moving their headquarters from the Boston suburb of Canton to the innovation and design building in the seaport district of South Boston. The reasons for the move, according to the company, is to be located in an urban environment that is more desirable to millennial workers and to “clarify the roles” of United States offices. The move was completed in the fall of 2018.
South Boston is a densely populated neighborhood of Boston, Massachusetts. South Boston, most popularly known as Southie, was once a predominantly working class Irish Catholic community, but has become increasingly desirable among young professionals. South Boston has undergone gentrification, and consequently, its real estate market has seen property values join the highest in the city.

Kent is a city in the U.S. state of Ohio and the largest city in Portage County. It is located along the Cuyahoga River in Northeast Ohio on the western edge of the county. The population was 28,904 in the 2010 Census and was estimated at 30,071 in 2016. The city is counted as part of the Akron Metropolitan Statistical Area and the larger Cleveland–Akron–Canton Combined Statistical Area.
Part of the Connecticut Western Reserve, Kent was settled in 1805 and was known for many years as Franklin Mills. Settlers were attracted to the area due to its location along the Cuyahoga River as a place for water-powered mills. Later development came in the 1830s and 1840s as a result of the settlement's position along the route of the Pennsylvania and Ohio Canal. Leading up to the American Civil War, Franklin Mills was noted for its activity in the Underground Railroad. With the decline of the canal and the emergence of the railroad, the town became the home of the Atlantic and Great Western Railroad maintenance shops through the influence of Marvin Kent. In 1864 the town was renamed Kent in honor of and in gratitude for Marvin Kent's efforts. It was incorporated as a village in 1867 and became a city after the 1920 Census. Today Kent is a college town best known as the home of the main campus of Kent State University, founded in 1910, and as the site of the 1970 Kent State shootings.
Historically a manufacturing center, education is the city's largest economic sector with Kent State University the city's, and one of the region's, largest employers. The Kent City School District and the Kent Free Library provide additional education opportunities and resources. Many of Kent's demographic elements are influenced by the presence of the university, particularly the median age, median income, and those living below the poverty level. The city is governed by a council-manager system with a city manager, a nine-member city council, and a mayor. Kent has nearly 20 parks and preserves and hosts a number of annual festivals including ones related to Earth Day, folk music, and the U.S. Independence Day. In addition to the Kent State athletic teams, the city also hosts a number of amateur and local sporting events at various times during the year. Kent is part of the Cleveland-Akron media market and is the city of license for three local radio stations and three television stations and includes the regional affiliates for National Public Radio (NPR) and the Public Broadcasting Service (PBS). Local transportation infrastructure includes a public bus service and hike-and-bike trails. As the home of the Davey Tree Expert Company, Kent is known as The Tree City while residents are referred to as Kentites. The city has produced a number of notable individuals, particularly in politics, athletics, and the entertainment industry.

10,689 Miles, 33 States, all in 33 Days (ZAU's 2012 American Road Trip - Timelapse)
In the summer of 2012, I embarked upon a 10,000+ mile journey by myself around the United States, to which I recorded the entire 33 day trip. 1 picture was taken every 10 seconds which played at 15 FPS, 1 second of video correlates to roughly 2.5 minutes of travel time (as some segments have been speed up or slowed down to better the flow). In all, over 415 hours of driving + activities were recorded.
A great pleasure I had along the way was to visit as many friends and family as possible (and not just solely for the fact that I got fed something other than my daily: apples, bagel, soup, and rice). One friend even accompanied me along the adventure from Portland, OR to Billings, MT (though I should note that I remained the driver the entire trip).
Most thankfully, I completed the trip with NO injuries, NO traffic tickets, and NO accidents!!! .... well, my truck did run into issues in Death Valley, and there was the time the police questioned me, the weapons incident at the border, and the squirrel!!! ....But everything turned out fine in the end :-) (See if you can find those incidents yourself in the video)
Hopefully, folks enjoy this time-lapse as essentially it represents some folks' dream to just up and leave on an amazing road (and hopefully inspires folks to do the same as I did). Not to mention, it shows a great chunk of America compressed into 2 hours without you having to make all of the bathroom stops yourself!
