My time in Boston

According to a friend who went to MIT, there's a longstanding myth that Boston's downtown streets were originally cow paths which lead to the Boston Common - once the town's cow pasture for many years. The story served to explain why the streets were so dysfunctional, but in actuality the early settlers were just poor city planners who wanted to be close to the water.
