So what's with the Leather, you ask?
Rich in history and alive with anticipation, Boston’s historic Leather District is comprised of approximately 16 square blocks between the Financial District, 93 South, South Station/Ft. Point Channel and Chinatown.
The lofts originally were leather manufacturing facilities and many of the residences maintain rough hewn wooden floors with hand hammered nails, pressed tin ceilings and large open spaces.
Home to restaurants, clubs, cafes and businesses it also supports a growing number of loft residences. Like Greenwich Village or SoHo, the neighborhood maintains a funky urban grittiness, combined with a growing cosmopolitan feel. My mission is to bring gourmet food, or at least gourmet food writing to the LD.
