Honored when I got the call to produce the official photograph of the newly renovated lobby in Boston’s historic Park Plaza. Opened in 1927, it was the largest hotel in New England and the first in the country to offer in-room radios. For decades, the union property was the epicenter of Boston’s Democratic political scene, frequented by presidents from Franklin D. Roosevelt to John F. Kennedy, who sat under Baccarat crystal chandeliers at events in the hotel’s opulent Versailles-style ballroom. With more than 1000 rooms at near full capacity, this shoot was done overnight to avoid foot traffic and guest inconvenience.
