Johnny Kelley Statue Reviews & Ratings
Found it interesting. Not much to see there.
A great landmark to see as you start the Boston Marathon.
For decades Johnny Kelley was an inspiring figure for thousands who have watched this historical race. Miss you Johnny!
It's an icon! Seems silly that it needs a review. If you're a runner, you'll be happy to see it. Many bring sneakers or other trinkets in homage.
Good place to walk
