  • A well-preserved piece of history located in a prime place in downtown Boston. This could've been preserved as a historical place rather than having a restaurant inside this building.
  • We got a little lost finding this place and we never did because it doesn’t really exists anymore. So old corner book store isn’t actually a bookstore anymore! So that was a little frustrating to find out after searching for it for about 30 mins!
