Nice selection of shops but mainly high end. A few department stores. Not very busy so easy to get around.

There is construction in the area, but the square itself is not as nice as it has been in the past. Many homeless people hanging in front of the church and the grounds are not well maintained.

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
Tower, are highlights of the city skyline. Visit
Newbury street to explore unique and trendy boutiques
– as well as every other kind of store imaginable –
all housed in beautiful brownstone buildings. In nice
