Exactly WHERE Is That Sign Again?

Not to be giving anything away, but in The War of the Worlds there's a brief shot of a sign that says "Welcome to Boston."

Could one of you long-time Bostonian types please tell me where the heck that sign is? Pretty please? (We all know that Massachusetts has many virtues, but road signage isn't one of them.)

Why do I have this sneaking suspicion that this sign is like the "Georgetown stop" for the Washington DC Metro (that's the DC version of the T, folks) in the movie No Way Out? (Stretch your mind back to the '80s, if you must.) No such stop exists--much to the chagrin of people wanting to visit that parking-challenged hotspot--but when Kevin Costner comes out of the "station" (the signs are the wrong color, too, btw), it sure earned a big laugh from the Washington audience I saw it with.

This is way late, but I was just watching this on TV. That looks to be like a fictitious street and sign. There are not roads that straight in Boston. :)
