Boston Walk: Downtown CrossingJuly 26, 2021
A year after the great shutdown began, I take a walk through Boston’s Downtown Crossing to the edge of the Theater District. On this Sunday afternoon, Boston’s shopping district was alive but not lively – at least by pre-shutdown standards.
While Macys and Primark are still there and open for business, Forever 21 is sadly not forever. Space for lease is everywhere. Cafe Nero by the Paramount Theater was open with patrons, but Legal next door was empty. Many restaurants are still closed, either temporarily or permanently. It will be interesting to see how DTX is doing in three month’s time.
