Shop Along Boston's Newbury Street

Shop Along Boston's Newbury Street

When you want to shop until you drop, head to Newbury Street. As Boston's best-known shopping street, it features eight blocks filled with everything from art galleries to designer clothing boutiques. Here is some of what you can discover near our Cambridge apartments:

Johnny Cupcakes 

When Johnny Cupcakes opened its doors, it became the world's first T-shirt bakery. Founder Johnny Earle started 16 businesses by the time he was 16 years old. One day, he made T-shirts for a bakery that didn't exist while creating shirts to promote his brand. They made people smile, and soon he was selling them out of the trunk of his beat-up car.  The brick-and-mortar location opened after Johnny and his dad transformed a shop into an old-fashioned bakery where the shirts were sold out of vintage refrigerators. The store has since gained recognition from The New York Times and The Boston Globe, and has welcomed notable customers like Duff Goldman and John Stamos. 

Room & Board 

Step into Room & Board to find modern furnishings. The designers balance modern lines with timeless details, and there's something for every room of your home. Over 90 percent of the products are made in the United States. The company does its part to help the environment and strives to use 100 percent sustainably sourced wood by 2025. Pieces include loveseats, dining tables, and wall art. 

Newbury Fine Arts

Established in 1984, Newbury Fine Arts is where the artists show off their unique perspectives through their masterful techniques. One of the artists includes Paul Chester. His work blends painting and sculptural elements and will add a conversation piece to your home. Additionally, the gallery also hosts four to five one-person shows and one group show annually. 

When you need a break from shopping, kick back and paint your own pottery at a nearby studio. If you would like to call Luxe at Alewife home, please contact our leasing team. They will show you everything our apartments in Cambridge have to offer.
