Favorite aspect of Back Bay

Back Bay is famous for the shops on Newbury Street, the bars on Boylston Street, the beautiful Boston Commons, the Prudential Center and the Christian Science building. What is your favorite thing about this Boston neighborhood?

Boston CommonS? There was only one Boston Common, the last time I checked! And it's not in Back Bay. Back Bay's green spaces include the Commonwealth Avenue Mall and the Esplanade; the Common is considered part of downtown. Welcome to Boston, Swati!
My favorite aspect of Back Bay is its grand 19th-century architecture and elegant, Paris-inspired layout. Fine old trees, brick sidewalks, gaslights, and postage-stamp gardens make this neighborhood one of Boston's gems.
