Boston is one of the key international ports in the USA and was one of the major centers of manufacturing in the country. But although she retains the importance of her port, Bostons manufacturing base is in decline as American manufacturing moves east to cities like Detroit and Chicago.
Boston is a bustling modern city with a population of almost three quarters of a million people. And from Boston one can purchase a train ticket to anywhere in the US or a steamer ticket to anywhere in the world. A sea plane service runs between Boston and Europe as well.
