Danger: Falling Floors



I was walking past the construction on the old Filene's building the other day, and they had some kind of crazy machine that was reaching in and tearing down the floors. I couldn't find an angle I liked, until I gave up and went shoe shopping. I took this photo out the window of DSW across the street, so you'll have to excuse the lights that are reflected.

Oh, you just break my heart. I was so hoping it was only for renovation they were closed. :( Looks as thought I'll NOT be shopping in the original basement on my trip back to the US.

Did you buy any shoes? I've been noticing this devastation for some time, Filene's was my favorite store (I hate Macy's).

I posted a picture for today, Saturday, of the Filene's site also. I guess great minds think alike:)

Isadora - the origianl Basement will be moving back once the renovations to the rest of the building are done...I don't, however, have any idea when that will be.

Clueless - funny that you posted it today, too. I keep looking out the window at work and seeing the condos that you've been showing us progress on, but I haven't actually pulled out the camera yet. I can see the top of the old Filene's building out my window, too, so get to watch that from up above sometimes as well.

This is really great... and I love how shoe shopping is helpful!
