Lunch Time Wandering Through Downtown Crossing

At the end of February, I walked through around the old Filenes Department Store building and logged a few waymarks.

Right in downtown Boston, there is a construction site where you see some remains of buildings and a big hole.  This was the Filenes Department Store and Headquarters which, hopefully, will become Filenes Tower.  Right now, everything is at a standstill, like other construction sites, since the developers can’t secure credit.  I’ll be watching for developments on this story.

Another good waymark was the Great Boston Fire 0f 1872 .  This fire was the largest that Boston has seen and wiped out over 200 buildings.

It was another gorgeous and warm day, after having such a brutal streak of cold earlier in the month.
