The Angle of the Triangle

Charles Bulfinch wacked off the top of Beacon Hill for his statehouse, and then filled in Mill Pond, using a grid plan with diagonals for the urban design. This industrial flatiron building was constructed in 1904, with three additional floors added when it became the Bulfinch Hotel.

A rare stellar pointy building, thought the effort is somewhat squandered by its less-than-prominant  non-vista-terminating location.
