Newbury Street Vacancies

During my brief jaunt down part of Newbury St. on Wednesday, I was taken aback at the commercial vacancies.

These pics are on the block between Dartmouth and Exeter Streets (with one exception, the old Gap storefront that was literally just across Exeter Street).

I probably could have found more of these signs further down Newbury or on the side streets (such as at the old Restoration Hardware).

It's such a shame to see. Not that I'm much of a Newbury Street shopper, but vacant storefronts are never a good sign.

Wow, I usually would assume that at a popular, busy and famous shopping area like Newbury Street wouldn't be affected much by bad economic. Well, I guess I was wrong and I have a feeling that the worse is yet to come!
