On my way to a wedding, we detoured to Boston for a day. We're staying at the Nine Zero for a night before we go to Worcester. There was a Borders just a couple of blocks away. It looks like the space used to be a bank. It's just a few blocks from the Filenes, which is still empty since Macys consolidated their department store business in Boston.
With both B&N and Borders out of downtown (the one that shows up on maps is actually the college bookstore for a campus for Tufts), I wonder if there is now a space for an indie bookstore somewhere around here. I'm glad to hear that Trident is expanding, but that's more in the Back Bay, where there is also a B&N. Now I understand a bit better why the Barbara's does so well in South Station.
On the other hand, there were two cupcake stores within two blocks of the hotel.
