This Roadside Attraction Near Boston Is The Most Unique Thing You’ve Ever Seen

There’s a living art gallery hiding just off Mass Ave in Cambridge, and you may have passed right by without even realizing it was there. Modica Way is far more than just an alley — it’s an homage to street art. This under-appreciated attraction is the perfect sight when winter has bleached the landscape of color.
