Boston is known for getting the accommodation of some of the important brave ambassadors of the Revolutionary War, and there’s neither scarce of monuments built in the above city to celebrate their perfection. But not all monuments in Boston go that far home as the 18th century – there are plenty of them and glory in recent history too! Here are three contemporary statues that have found a place among the city’s many statues, or are definitely worth a visit every single time:

Arnold Jacobson “Red” Auerbach – Coach and general manager of the Boston Celtics Basketball Team for over 29 years, and during that he assembled 16 NBA Championships, he was voted one of several top 10 best NBA captains over the last 12 years. Auerbach was popular for lighting his celebration smoke at Boston Garden when it became clear that the Celtics had the game on the line. He died in 2006, his picture is in Quincy Market, in which he rests (smoke on take) at the table at the west end of the market, only a short walk from the Marriott Custom House Hotel.

Kevin White – Mayor of Boston from 1968 to 1984, he was the first mayor to take office in the new restaurant City Hall, the plan was in the distasteful Brutalist design. The prank is to signal that White would be strolling – very quickly back from City Hall. His monument (the only larger-than-life monument in the city) it is located northwest of Faneuil Hall, on Congress Street and North Streets, just across the street from the Millennium Bostonian hotel.

James Michael Curley Was mayor of Boston for several reasons, and then also provided three terms in the House of Representatives, each period as Governor of Massachusetts, and first period in the Massachusetts House of Corrections. Curley was charged with fraud for taking a Civil Service Exam instead of one of his components, he became a legend in the eyes of the middle class. His two monuments remain in front of the City Hall, side waiting as if giving a speech (his “mayoral” yoga) or the one sitting on the beach behind it (as a child “man of the people”).
