Wander around this quintessential neighborhood in the
heart of Boston for high-end shops, restaurants, and
the feeling of city bustle. Its most identifiable
skyscrapers, the Prudential Center and John Hancock

– as well as every other kind of store imaginable –
all housed in beautiful brownstone buildings. In nice
