Some good food places if you do your research, plus amazing TJ Maxx and Marshalls.

Downtown Crossing isn't a destination I usually seek out, but it isn't a terrible place for shopping if you happen to be in the area. Generally very busy here, and not much of a draw since Filene's Basement closed.

Downtown Crossing is sort of gross, dirty and often bad-smelling, but it's the only place to go in the city for a bunch of retail clothing stores... When Filene's Basement was around, there was always a very compelling reason to go down there. Having so many stores so near each other not in a mall is pretty great, but there's not much of a reason to hang out in Downtown Crossing otherwise.

Busy area with some shopping. It's not my favorite place, but the historic Macy's building and the selection of stores makes it a destination from time to time.
