"Prudential Center" Prudential Center Tip by zChris

Prudential Center, Boston: 21 reviews and 35 photos

by zChris

The largest office and retail complex in the region, the Prudential Center, or 'da Pru', as it is known by Bostonians, is a major feature in Boston's skyline. Although its central 52-storey building is a rather ugly skyscraper, the complex itself holds a beautiful airy mall with upscale shops and restaurants like Marche Movenpick. Although it's mostly seen for its mall, which is basically like most American malls, the Pru does have an interesting observation deck that's free (compared to the $6 charged at the Hancock across Copley Square).
