Tours and Tickets

The area
Address
Neighborhood: Downtown
The largest area of the city, Downtown is rich with historical and iconic sites in Boston. Stroll through one of Boston’s most famous green spaces, the Boston Public Gardens, check out and make way for duckling statues, picnic under a beautiful tree overlooking the pond, and walk over the iconic footbridge where, during summer time, you will catch a swan boat toting children and eager tourists through the pond. Have your camera ready to capture its peaceful beauty in the middle of a bustling city. Continue on through the Gardens and take in some open green space at the Boston Common, where you can spend time throwing a frisbee, sitting on a park bench, or, in the winter time, skating on the frog pond. Head north from the end of the Common to see the golden dome of the State House, and travel through government center to Quincy Market and Faneuil Hall, both a historic and popular destination worth a quick visit for a first time to Boston. Head to Long Wharf to visit the Aquarium, or catch a boat to Charlestown or even Cape Cod.

A little historical writing about one of Boston's greatest sports profiles of all time. A different way instead of a statue.

The plaque is in Quincy square market next to the statue of the great coach of the Boston Celtics Red. If your in the area and your a huge fan of the sport or of Larry Bird its worth stoping to take a look at parking is difficult to find.

While wandering the markerplace saw this plaque, thanks to internet access understood more after looking at it who it was all about, worth stopping to review No33 and his fame.

I know people in Boston love Larry Bird. And he was a pretty important player. But it's just a plaque. Takes two seconds to look at.

Walking around Boston and saw I was close to this so i figured I would take a look. Google came up short this time. It close to the Victoria Secrets next to a statue of Red. It was about 50 yards away from where google said. Its just a plaque nothing to go out of the way for but if uour walking by take a look .

Kind of lame...

You're telling me that you'll have a statue of Edgar Allen Poe who actually hated the city, but you won't put up a giant statue of one of the greatest basketball stars of all time, the legendary Larry Bird? Is that right? This must be a mistake. You have a statue of the Mayor from three decades ago who is about the size of Larry Bird outside the Fanueil Hall... Did you run out of money like on the Simpsons, so instead of a statue of JFK, you put up a Jimmy Carter? Just... Get this sorted out BOSTON! "aht's amatta fo you, eh!"

Neat monument to legendary basketball star - Larry Bird
Oct 2015 • Couples
In between the Quincy Market and South Market colonnades at the Faneuil Marketplace, you can see a small plague for legendary Boston Celtic, Larry Bird.

Larry Bird starred for the Celtics for thirteen seasons (1978-1992) being named NBA MVP on three occasions and winning three NBA titles during his playing days. The plague made in honour of Larry Bird being inducted into the NBA Hall of Fame in 1998.

The plague recognises his retired jersey number (33) and is a simple showing of a pair of basketball sneakers as well as an engraving detailing his illustrious career with the Boston Celtics. It is a simple but neat monument located next to that of another famous Boston Celtic, legendary coach Red Auerbach.

This is a quick and easy monument to enjoy for basketball and particularly Boston Celtic fans if passing by Faneuil Marketplace.
