As one of the USA’s oldest cities, Boston has a rich history, such as the key role it played in the American Revolution. Goldray’s own Danielle took some time to check out the sites and attractions, while visiting some of our valued customers and potential clients.
You might expect a metropolis of this size to be a haven of chain restaurants and retail stores, but in fact Bostonians prefer to support local businesses. There are recognizable brands lining Newbury Street in the Back Bay area, but they are not omnipresent. You are more likely to find a family-owned Italian restaurant like Panza, or Boston-Native favorite Mike’s Pastry where you can try one or all of the 18 flavors of their to-die-for Cannolis. When looking for unique shopping check out Faneuil Hall, a buzzing hub that alternates between brick-and-mortar shops and flea market kiosks.
One of the locations we requested Danielle visit was Walk To The Sea – a 2.5-mile walking route of historic sites that tell the story of the nation’s founding. Goldray manufactured the 10 freestanding glass panels that relay information about the landmarks along the tour. We are pleased to report that they have stood up to the test of time. The text and images on the Technographic Interlayer laminated between thick layers of clear glass have the same brightness and clarity today, as when they were produced and installed in 2008.
Goldray Glass is proud to partner with Tony Kasprzak of Seawall Architectural Products, a company familiar with the architects, designers and glazers in the Boston area. While in Beantown, Danielle and Tony stopped in to chat with a few of our local customers. “It was great to finally put faces to the names of people I have spoken to on the phone and exchanged countless emails with,” recounts Danielle. We’d like to extend a big thank you to Salem Glass, Spaceworks and Turning Point for their continued support and welcoming Danielle with open arms.
Boston did not disappoint, even on her very last day sitting in the airport, Danielle was granted one last tourist moment. Paul Wahlberg – owner of Wahlburgers (a local burger joint) and brother of actors/musicians Donnie and Mark Wahlberg – made an appearance. He was just heading through security as Danielle boarded her flight, otherwise we’d probably have a fantastic selfie of the two of them to include in our photo collage.
