Boston (US: / ˈ b ɔː s t ə n /, UK: / ˈ b ɒ s t ə n /) is the capital and most populous city of the Commonwealth of Massachusetts in the United States, and the 21st most populous city in the United city proper covers 49 square miles ( km 2) with an estimated population of , in , also making it the most populous city in New England, and is the seat of Suffolk.

The Puritans called it Trimountaine until the town was renamed after Boston, Lincolnshire, England. It was the Massachusetts Bay Company’s original governor John Winthrop who preached the famous sermon called “A City upon a Hill.” Delivered prior to their departure from England in , Winthrop spoke of the special covenant the Puritans.   In the , owners of the wharves along the South Cove, including Griffin’s wharf where the Boston tea party took place, decided filling the cove and wharves to build railroads would be more profitable than keeping the cove open for shipping.. The city cut down Fort hill, now the Fort Point neighborhood, and used it to fill the South cove, which created modern day Chinatown, and the Great. Tremont Street begins at Government Center in Boston's city center as a continuation of Cambridge Street, and forms the eastern edge of Boston uing in a roughly southwesterly direction, it passes through Boston's Theater District, crosses the Massachusetts Turnpike, and becomes a broad boulevard in the South End neighborhood. It then turns to the west as a narrower four-lane. Boston's West End, is demolished in an urban renewal project. Many old buildings in the downtown area are demolished to build skyscrapers. Quincy Market is renovated, creating Faneuil Hall Marketplace, a huge tourist attraction. This urban renewal project is used as a model by many other cities in the United States.

The settlement of Trimountaine had its name changed to Boston on September 7, , and Governor Winthrop founded the City of Boston on Septem naming it after the town of Boston, Lincolnshire, from which many of the settlers came. The Puritan community of Boston has bequeathed the city its culture of learning, self-reliance and hard work.
