Boston's Newbury Street is the fashion mecca of the Hub. Just three stops from Park Street on the Green Line (take any outbound car, "Boston College," "Heath Street," "Cleveland Circle," or "Riverside") and get out at Copley (pronounced "cop-lee"). Copley Square features two special architectural treasures, historic Trinity Church (it's worth a look inside to see the stained glass windows and vaunting structure) and the sleekly modern John Hancock Building, a towering structure of glass. (Trinity Church reflected in the Hancock windows is a favorite subject for photographers). The imposing Boston Public Library faces Trinity Church, and Newbury Street is one block towards the Charles River and Commonwealth Avenue. The lower numbers of Newbury St. feature the most swank addresses, starting with the Ritz Carlton Hotel, which faces the Public Garden, continuing with chi-chi designer shops (Armani Emporio at 210 Newbury; and the Armani Cafe next door at 214 Newbury, the place to Be Seen); jewelers, (Dorfman, at 24 Newbury, for spectacular gems)and art galleries such as Chase at number 129, featuring up-and-coming artists. Further up Newbury Street, as the number of students increases, so do the bookstores, artsy cafes and the 3-story CD palace, Tower Records.
