This is one of the many scenic sites along the Harbor walk. Great place to stop and enjoy the city architecture. The fan shaped building at this point is a US court house (I think), it has great view out over the harbor and towards...More

Fan Pier is located within the heavily congested Seaport District. It offers fine views of the Harbor and Downtown, and the park behind the Federal Courthouse is a nice place to sit in good weather.

Nice short walk. It was very quiet on a Sunday night. There's a fire pit along the walkway. You can hear the planes roar taking off from the horizon.
