Everything is a chain, the bars are corny, the food is bland and everyone walking around was a tourist with a fanny pack. Diversity was non existent. Quincy market is a nightmare that I pray is never replicated here. The north end is too polished, not nearly as authentic as 9th st. Street performers were generic and lacked the soul found in Philly performers
Center city in comparison is way more hip and independent. I dont really appreciate how hip center city is until I go elsewhere. My corner bars (Varga bar and locust bar) would respectively be the best foodie bar and the coolest dive bar in downtown Boston
Both downtowns are clean in my opinion, didn't use the transit much so don't know how it compares
