Three areas of interest...
1. If the 22s are in use, constitution beach. Get off at the Orient Heights or Woods Hole station on the blue line at the T and walk down bennington St until you get to the beach overpass. Need at least a 70-300 if you want to get anything smaller than the big heavies.
2. Castle island in south Boston. You need a car for this.
Both of these spots are useless in the morning, the sun is in the wrong position and you can only use them if the 4s/22s are in use.
If rwy 27 is in use there's a park in Winthrop that I like to spot at and it's good through the day. Never tried in the morning though.
If the 33/32 are in use, you are out of luck, unless you have a boat ... unless you want to try the parking garage, and then you're at risk of being tossed by Massport.

If the lens is long enough, RWY 33L is doable ........
