The official name of Quincy Market is Faneuil Hall Marketplace, though Boston locals keep calling it Quincy Market after the name of burgomaster Josh Quincy, who built it in the 19th century. The market recommenced its work in 1976 and became one of the most popular sights of the city. Before that the condition of the complex was so poor that it even was under the danger of demolition.
Nowadays the market is the place, where one can have a good time at a cafe or a restaurant, or simply enjoy some shopping. Quincy Market consists of 5 buildings - 3 of them are central and the other 2 are located to the south and to the north of them. The central gallery is called Food Court. This is the place where visitors will find restaurants featuring various national cuisines. Visitors are welcome to try dishes from different cuisines – from Greek traditional food to Italian pasta, yogurt ice-cream and fried sausages. There are souvenir shops at the both sides of the gallery. This is the place where tourists can one can buy t-shirts, photos with the image of Boston and other lovely souvenirs.
