dbo:abstract
  • Greater Boston is the metropolitan region of New England encompassing the municipality of Boston, the capital of the U.S. state of Massachusetts and the most populous city in New England, as well as its surrounding areas. The region forms the northern arc of the U.S. northeast megalopolis and as such, Greater Boston can be described as either a metropolitan statistical area (MSA), or as a broader combined statistical area (CSA). The MSA consists of most of the eastern third of Massachusetts, excluding the South Coast region and Cape Cod; while the CSA additionally includes the municipalities of Manchester (the largest city in the U.S. state of New Hampshire), Providence (the capital of the U.S. state of Rhode Island), Worcester, Massachusetts (the second largest city in New England), as well as the South Coast region and Cape Cod in Massachusetts. Greater Boston's most impactful contributions to human civilization involve the region's higher education institutions, innovation, and scientific research. Greater Boston constitutes a region influential upon American history, academia, and industry. The region and the state of Massachusetts are global leaders in biotechnology, engineering, higher education, finance, and maritime trade. Over 80% of Massachusetts' population lives in the Greater Boston metropolitan region. Greater Boston is ranked tenth in population among U.S. metropolitan statistical areas, home to 4,732,161 people as of the 2014 U.S. Census estimate, and sixth among combined statistical areas, with a population of 8,099,575. The area has many people and sites significant to American culture and history, particularly American literature, politics, and the American Revolution. Plymouth was the site of the first colony in New England, founded in 1620 by the Pilgrims, passengers of the Mayflower. In 1692, the town of Salem and surrounding areas experienced one of America's most infamous cases of mass hysteria, the Salem witch trials. In 1777, General Henry Knox founded the Springfield Armory, which during the Industrial Revolution catalyzed numerous important technological advances, including interchangeable parts. In 1786, Shays' Rebellion, a populist revolt led by disaffected Revolutionary War veterans, influenced the United States Constitutional Convention. In the 18th century, the Protestant First Great Awakening, which swept the Atlantic world, originated from the pulpit of Northampton preacher Jonathan Edwards. In the late 18th century, Boston became known as the "Cradle of Liberty" for the agitation there that led to the American Revolution. The Greater Boston region has played a powerful commercial and cultural role in the history of the United States. Before the American Civil War, the region was a center for the abolitionist, temperance, and transcendentalist movements. In 2004, Massachusetts became the first U.S. state to legally recognize same-sex marriage as a result of the decision of the Massachusetts Supreme Judicial Court in Boston. Many prominent American political dynasties have hailed from the Boston region, including the Adams and Kennedy families. Harvard University in Cambridge is the oldest institution of higher learning in the United States, with the largest financial endowment of any university, and whose Law School has spawned a contemporaneous majority of United States Supreme Court Justices. Both Harvard University and the Massachusetts Institute of Technology, also in Cambridge, have been ranked among the most highly regarded academic institutions in the world. (en)

  • Die Region Boston-Cambridge-Quincy (besser bekannt als Greater Boston) bezeichnet das Gebiet im Commonwealth of Massachusetts um die Stadt Boston im Bundesstaat Massachusetts in den Vereinigten Staaten. Der Begriff ist jedoch mehrdeutig und kann sich daher flächenmäßig auf ein beliebiges Areal zwischen den Größenordnungen der Metropolitan Statistical Area (MSA) und der Combined Statistical Area (CSA) von Boston beziehen, die auch die Metropolregionen von Providence in Rhode Island und Worcester in Massachusetts umfasst. Im Gegensatz dazu ist der Begriff Metro Boston für den „inneren Kern“ um Boston herum reserviert, während Greater Boston üblicherweise mindestens die Regionen North Shore, South Shore und MetroWest sowie das Merrimack Valley umfasst. In der Region Greater Boston lebten 2008 mehr als 4,6 Millionen Menschen, was sie auf Platz 10 der Liste der bevölkerungsreichsten MSA in den USA bringt. Auf die CSA bezogen lebten dort im selben Jahr mehr als 7,6 Millionen Menschen, was Rang 5 in der Liste der CSA bedeutet. Die Region beinhaltet viele Orte und Hinweise auf Persönlichkeiten der Geschichte der Vereinigten Staaten, insbesondere der Amerikanischen Revolution, der Bürgerrechte, der amerikanischen Literatur sowie der US-amerikanischen Politik. Greater Boston ist ein wesentliches Zentrum des US-amerikanischen Bildungswesens, der Finanzindustrie sowie des Tourismus und liegt in der Rangliste der Produktivität (gemessen in der Kennzahl Gross Metropolitan Product) weltweit auf Platz 12.

  • Большой Бостон, Бостонская агломерация (англ. Greater Boston, Metro Boston) — городская агломерация на территории Новой Англии. Согласно переписи 2012 года, население самого города, двадцатого по количеству населения в стране, всего 636 тыс. жителей. Тем не менее, численность населения всей области Бостона, включая Кембридж, Бруклайн, Куинси и другие пригороды, превышает 5,8 миллиона, в зависимости от подсчёта, количество жителей агломерации составляет от 4,5 до 8 млн. Бостон с пригородами входит в десятку самых больших городов в США и в пятьдесят самых больших городов мира. В США иногда выделяют Метро-Бостон и собственно Большой Бостон. В них включаются пригороды и города-спутники Бостона в Массачусетсе, либо территория расширяется до Манчестера в долине реки Мерримак на севере, Вустера на западе, Провиденса (Род-Айленд) на юге и основания полуострова Кейп-Код на юго-востоке, занимая территорию трёх штатов. Бостонская агломерация — не только одна из важнейших территорий США в экономическом отношении (в ней расположены штаб-квартиры многих крупных компаний), но и одна из самых старейших территорий в стране, освоенных европейскими переселенцами. К примеру, Плимут является старейшим поселением англичан в Новой Англии. (ru)
