Can you identify these Boston spots?

Since Lanie’s books are all about loving the dirt, plants, birds, butterflies, and other animals of a place, I had to get to know her place well.  Some of the threads I had in mind ended up fizzling.  But some of these spots became part of scenes in the new American Girl books.  Any Bostonites recognize the spots?

Hint: these two top places are connected.

These two pictures are also connected (and you can see my guides for most of this journey).

Extra credit for anyone who knows where this spot DOES show up in Lanie’s books.
