"My friend owns a store on Newbury Street called House of Culture. He used to be a stylist for me when I was in the music business. He goes to London and New York and Paris, and he gets all the stuff that you can't get around here. He has very casual stuff and athletic wear, but also suits. Newbury Street is the SoHo of Boston. That's where all the upscale shops are. Northside Family Sportswear is where we used to go as kids and look in the window at all the stuff that we couldn't have, the Nikes and the sweat suits, and everything that was new and cool that we couldn't afford. So I'll go in there and buy stuff that I don't need just because I couldn't as a kid. But now I'm not doing that as much anymore."
"There are some great parks like the Boston Commons. You can go to the Boston Public Garden and they have swan boats and just beautiful lush greens where you can play football and Frisbee like in Central Park. The Children's Museum is great. It's right there in downtown Boston, actually near where the Boston Tea Party took place. And the aquarium is incredible. I used to love going there as a kid."
