The heart of busy Government Center, brutalist Boston City Hall sits in a vast brick plaza. Nearby Faneuil Hall was the site of meetings that stoked the American Revolution. Today it’s part of Faneuil Hall Marketplace, housing souvenir vendors, food stalls, bars, chain stores and specialty shops. Street performers entertain largely out-of-town crowds. Haymarket and Boston Public Market sell local produce and snacks.
