Boston is one of the oldest cities in the United States, founded on the Shawmut Peninsula in 1630 by Puritan settlers from England. It is sometimes called a "city of neighborhoods" because of the profusion of diverse subsections; the city government's Office of Neighborhood Services has officially designated 23 neighborhoods. The city is the third most densely populated large U.S. city of over half a million residents.
A global city, Boston is placed among the top 30 most economically powerful cities in the world. Encompassing $363 billion, the Greater Boston metropolitan area has the sixth-largest economy in the country and 12th-largest in the world. Boston is the largest broadcasting market in New England, with the radio market being the 9th largest in the United States. Boston has been a noted religious center from its earliest days.
Boston was also the first major city to host the annual First Night festival. Many of the crucial events of the American Revolution occurred in or near Boston. The Boston Film Festival was held annually in September and October. Also, on the weekend following Labor Day, the boutiques on Newbury Street close to over thirty art galleries spill out onto the street, providing access to their contents during Art Newbury Street. In October, the Boston Book Festival takes over Copley Square for a day attracting around 32,000 attendees. This free annual event promotes a culture of reading and ideas and enhances the vibrancy of our city with author keynotes, panels, live music, and activities for all ages.
Cuisine in Boston is similar to the rest of New England cuisine, in that it has a large emphasis on seafood and dairy products.
