Life in Boston
Boston, known as the "Cradle of Liberty", is the birthplace of the American Revolution, John F. Kennedy, Benjamin Franklin, John Adams, John Quincy Adams, John Hancock, and the oldest medical facility in New England (Tufts Medical Center). Boston has a longer and richer history than most cities in the United States with many of its streets and neighborhoods dating back to the 17th century. One can keep busy visiting reenactments of revolutionary battles and walking through over two centuries of America's history along the Freedom Trail, Women's Trail, and Black Heritage Trail.
Even with its deep historical roots, Boston maintains its culture and youth, hosting some of the best educational facilities in the United States. Boston has more than 60 colleges and universities, including some of the world's most prestigious institutions such as Tufts University, Harvard University, and the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT). This concentration of educated talent coupled with access to significant capital resources has transformed Boston into the leading biotechnology corridor in the world.
Residents and visitors have all the amenities of a big city but the convenience and feel of a small city. Boston’s modest size offers most individuals the ability to walk to all its amenities, facilities, and attractions, including its wide variety of arts, museums, and other forms of entertainment. Additionally, the city is well-known for its long-standing tradition of phenomenal sports teams and fans.
Boston is equidistant from the picturesque beaches of Cape Cod and the White Mountains of New Hampshire. Only a couple of hours from Vermont, Maine, and Connecticut, your choice of great ski resorts and weekend getaways ensures that the thrills you seek are just a car ride away.
Arisaph Pharmaceuticals, Inc. is located in downtown Boston with the financial district, Chinatown, and Tufts University as its neighbors. Boston's Chinatown is the third largest in the United States and it spans from South Station to the Boston Commons.
