Fenway Art Center … in the Back Bay?

I always thought it strange that the Fenway Art Center is locates in the heart of the Back Bay. It’s been there a long time too. To the right is Cafe Jaffa which is intermittently open and may have a customer or two when you walk by.

Rent can’t be cheap, L’Espalier (one of the most $$$$ restaurants in boston–and worth it) was on this street until their recent move to the Mondrian hotel.

What gives?

  1. Once upon a time the Fenway Art Center was located in the Fenway section of Boston. The owner of the FAC purchased 50 Gloucester St, many, many years ago and moved the business into the Back Bay. They had quite a following and did not change the name of the business to reflect the new Boston location.

    The business is now gone and the family sold the building.
