I spent several nights in the Boston, MA area in September 2016.  While there, strong tropo on the night of September 17 brought in tropo-enhanced signals from several New York, NY and surrounding area signals between that point and Boston, as well as a few stations from the opposite direction into Maine and New Hampshire.

The logs below are updated as I revisit the area. HD Radio and RDS screenshots are added when received and they may not reflect the initial logging of the stations listed below.
