Our virtual store tour winds down with a view of the posh Filene's Picnic Room Restaurant. There was also the similarly upscale Skyline Restaurant in the NORTHSHORE CENTER Jordan Marsh.

SHOPPERS' WORLD, the first mall in Massachusetts, featured a kiddie ride amusement area as one of its attractions. Following this trend was Kiddie Towne at NORTHSHORE CENTER, whose rides were imported from Germany. These included a merry-go-round, ferris wheel, Bullet Zipper, Boats, Flying Planes, Whip and Go-kart Track.
