Leather District

Leather District Review

Opposite South Station and inside the angle formed by Kneeland Street and Atlantic Avenue is a corner of downtown that has been relatively untouched by high-rise development: the old Leather District. It's probably the best place in downtown Boston to get an idea of what the city's business center looked like in the late 19th century. This was the wholesale supply area for raw materials in the days when the shoe industry was a regional economic mainstay; a few leather firms are still here, but most warehouses now contain expensive loft apartments.
