Thriving Urban Retail Districts of Boston
The streets of Boston in the Back Bay area are energized by restaurant and bar goers, shoppers and residents throughout the day and into the night. The place is alive everywhere you look and the streets are clean, safe and inviting. The Newbury Street retail scene is incredibly vibrant and is of the best of its kind anywhere in the world. It is made up of a series of converted street level brownstone spaces with retail, residential and office above. The adjacent neighborhoods, parks, civic/public, office/employment centers add to the true mixed-use experience and allow it to sustain as a thriving urban retail district. Similar areas were discovered in The North End and in Cambridge near Harvard University. As the old adage goes – a picture tells 1,000 words – enjoy the gallery here!
