Washington and the 617
You can easily spot this large George Washington statue showing the country's famous Revolutionary Warr general and First President on a horse silhouetted against the sky and overlooking Commonwealth Avenue Mall across Arlington Street. Even better is that George is donning the 2013 World Series Champions Red Sox Jersey with 617 on the back.
Sculpted from bronze by Thomas Ball in 1869, the George Washington statue is considered one of the best equestrian statues in the United States. It's also one of the most photographed statues in the Public Garden.
