Thanks to FEMA’s new flood-zone map for Boston, there’s going to be a lot of shocked and angry landowners in the city when they get slapped with demands that they have to buy flood insurance.

The Teradyne/state building is in the background. Plenty more pictures of the old Herald site can be found here at HB, where the above picture is from.
