Sudden influx of plywood into Downtown Crossing as store owners board up windows

Shake Shack being boarded up

As Macy's goes, so goes Downtown Crossing, apparently: After downtown's last department store boarded up its display windows and doors the other day, store owners all over the once busy commercial district rushed to do likewise, as Gary Waldeck discovered today.

I can see why they boarded up, but at least so far the protest is largely peaceful with some minor incidents

Most of Boston was happy to get out and be together after 3 months in lock down.

Amazing the difference an hour makes. Now those storefronts look very smart

Pray for peace. I fear one knucklehead from either the protestors or police could be the tipping point we all are afraid of.

looting and rioting. They set the cause back years by playing into stereotypes. Want to make a difference? Convince people by intellect and reasoning. I totally support those protesting peacefully but once looting starts, the cause it toast.
