Old discussion[edit]

Newbury street was not considered worthy of mention in Edwin M. Bacon's 1903 Boston: A Guide-Book, nor in Rand McNally's 1924 Boston Guide to Places of Interest in the City and Environs. [[User:Dpbsmith|Dpbsmith (talk)]]

  • because when those books were written, YOU COULDN'T MISS THE STREET, and in the Rand McNally book, go look up the famous "exeter theater", one of the country's most famous theaters (built in 1910(?)).
    • 1914, apparently. I saw at least one movie there when I was in college. [[User:Dpbsmith|Dpbsmith (talk)]] 19:47, 19 Oct 2004 (UTC)

It should be explained who this person is seeing that they are given such a huge amount of space for their quote. This article needs a good amount of work.Dough007 (talk) 05:08, 15 February 2008 (UTC).

I believe...[edit]

Doesn't Newbury Street continue beyond Mass Ave? I recall reading about this, most people ignore the part past Mass Ave because the southern half of the road was blown a away when they built the Pike. --Jeremy (blah blahI did it!) 05:26, 28 July 2009 (UTC)
