Many years ago Boylston Street was awash with liquor stores, dive bars, inexpensive shops and diners.  Here we see “The Pewter Pot Muffin House”, a much beloved eatery (now a Verizon store) at 745 Boylston – the erstwhile home of BRA for many years!  This picture is from just after the Blizzard of ’78 and some of the buildings in the distance survive to this day.

Interesting stats from the PAST month: (sublease & direct – in all cases temp space excluded) from Mass Ave to the Seaport, South End to North Station.
