    Boston rising

    After years of inactivity, ‘a renaissance on steroids’

    EVER SINCE the 2008 market crash, the metaphor for Boston has been the gaping hole in Downtown Crossing where Filene’s once thrived: a figurative hollowing out of the city. Granted, developer Millennium Partners now hopes to build on the site, but that’s a ways off and so the metaphor still holds: Something, it seems, is fundamentally wrong with Boston.

    Not at all.
