Welcome to the Financial District, Boston.
The Financial District is a neighborhood in downtown Boston, adjacent to the Government Center and Chinatown. The neighborhood is home to several large entities like the Fidelity Investments, Putnam Investment and State Street Bank headquarters, as well as giants like Langham and Hilton Hotels. Recently, there has been some development in this densely packed high-rise neighborhood, with the new Russia Wharf along the Fort Channel, rising 395 feet above ground with 32 stories. Adjoining the Financial District is the Downtown Crossing, which is a shopping district located west of the neighborhood. Downtown Crossing features a plethora of large department stores, restaurants, local retail, souvenir dealers and street vendors. This area is great for walking, as the section between Washington Street and portions of Winter and Summer streets are closed to traffic. This portion of the neighborhood has also been called the "Ladder District", since the side streets between the two main roads appear like the rungs of a ladder on the map. Downtown Crossing also houses plenty of specialty shops for things like jewelry, beauty products, books and music. If you are in favor of crowds, you'll definitely enjoy the hustle and bustle here during weekdays. Thousands of shoppers come down here each week, and during lunchtime the place is filled with professionals that come for the many restaurants. If you come here to shop, it is good to know that stores down here close early, since the area mainly caters to working commuters in downtown Boston.
