Anyone want to guess what the tallest building in the Back Bay is?
We can argue whether or not the Prudential Tower is an attractive structure—it isn't, but you're allowed to disagree—but Back Bay's Hancock Place stands, unarguably, as the Boston's tallest building. It also notches in as the 50th-tallest building in the country. The Prudential Tower stands as the country's 77th tallest. But how does the Back Bay's tallest structure fare when compared to other Boston neighborhoods' tallest structures? Obviously, the Hancock takes the cake when it comes to Boston buildings.

New children's stores in the mall draw parents with kids to the Shops at Prudential Center, a place that relieves the dearth of community spaces in the Back Bay.
Stay in your lane, pass on the left, and neither exceed nor fall under the speed limit: These are the unspoken traffic rules at Boston’s Prudential Center mall. Crowded with office workers, tourists, and locals, the busy hall off Boylston Street reminds you that you are still in the city.
