If you haven't been into the Restoration Hardware on Newbury (the bottom of the cake in the photo), it's worth a visit. They've done a really nice job with the space; I've often seen people just hanging out and relaxing in the store. Customers, too :^)

There was a very similar building next door to this one that was the home of MIT.
You can see a bit of it in this photo.

Here's an atlas with the two building shown.

to make way for the New England Mutual Life Insurance building (now called the 'Newbry'), which takes up the rest of this long Back Bay block.

An everyday view in the right angle with the right light becomes gorgeous! Thank you.
