Boylston Street is the name of a major east-west thoroughfare in the city of Boston, road begins in Boston's Fenway neighborhood, runs through Back Bay, forms the southern border of the Boston Public Garden and Boston Common, and ends in Downtown Boston.. A different Boylston Street runs through Boston's western suburbs, Newton and Brookline. A 'read' is counted each time someone views a publication summary (such as the title, abstract, and list of authors), clicks on a figure, or views or downloads the full-text.   A detail of the Boston Common from a map by William Burgis shown below highlights the site’s original natural features.
