    Prudential Center Sky Walk

    Prudential Center Sky Walk
    Although not at the very top of the Prudential Tower (that honor is reserved for the Top of the Hub restaurant), when the Prudential Center opened in 1965 with its 52 stories, it was the city's tallest building until the 60-story Hancock tower was completed 11 years later. The building features 10 acres of glass curtain walls and 4,000 windows. While the tower itself is mostly used for office space, it is also part of a complex that includes almost 50 shops and several restaurants. The 'Pru' center is also home to several apartment buildings, and is connected to the Hynes Convention Center and the Sheraton Boston Hotel.

    Going to the top of the Prudential. It's the highest building in Boston now. You can see a lot and it's really pretty. It's not the TOP. It's one floor below the top, there's a restaraunt on the top floor, it's called top of the hub.

    The Prudential Center

    Biju (VT member Zack01) and I made this our first stop on my trip to Boston. We went up to the 50th floor skywalk and were able to get great 360 degree views of the city. The admission to the skywalk is $7 and you'll have to sign in with security when you enter the building.

    And how it looks after dark

    by Reverend Written Aug 10, 2005

    This is one of the best parts of the view at night. The top of this building, all lit-up, seems as if you could reach out and touch it.

    Not quite as close as it looks

    I don't know the name of the modern looking tower next to the Prudential Center, but looking up from the atrium outside both buildings is impressive.

    View from Top of Prudential Building

    by Reverend Written Aug 8, 2005

    Terrific 360-degree view of the city. There is also a restaurant, just above the observation deck called Top of the City.

    Northeast view, Boylston St. towards Boston Common
