Perhaps because Boston itself is so small (both geographically and touristically), wall maps of the greater metropolitan area are almost nonexistent. This map properly shows Boston as a region instead of a small city: not only are mass transit and park space administered at this larger scale, but income is also distributed regionally. Except for a few well known areas like Beaon Hill and the Back Bay, Boston itself is surprisingly impoverished, as are some of the inner suburbs like Lynn. Wealthy areas are located mostly a half-hour drive to the west, in Concord, Lincoln, or Dover. The old whaling town of Marblehead is the rich outpost to the east.
