Urban Haven

When I lived in Boston and was involved with the excellent nondiscriminatory and non-faith-based Big Sisters organization, I often took my charge and her friends to the quiet, fern-filled Isabella Stewart Gardner Museum, where we would stroll around, eat cake in their tea room, and listen to concerts of classical music. It was my little sister's favorite place to go in the city, as an escape from the violent and chaotic neighborhood around her housing project. Now I am delighted to see that the museum is making its live concerts available to the public for sharing under a Creative Commons license. Note: museum organizers ask that the content be distributed freely but not be remixed.
