"Comedy and tragedy on Stuart"
Stuart Street is, like so many streets in Boston, a different character in every block. My parents often talk about back when Stuart was part of the city's notorious "Combat Zone", Beantown's onetime bed of sin. It's been cleaned up significantly; New England Law, ironically enough, is based only a few blocks away from the old Red Light district. A few city landmarks, old and new, are to be found here: Jacob Wirth's, the W Hotel/Bar, and of course, the Theater District. Yet for the clusters of culture, there are also some nastier and rougher patches. Plus, it isn't the easiest street to access, even via public transit. Bottom line: unless there's a specific attraction you're planning on visiting here, there are plenty of other interesting spots to explore nearby.
