The exact center of the universe

Washington Street at Filene's, Downtown Crossing

Everybody knows Boston is the Hub of the Universe. Few people, however, know that the exact center of the Universe is located just outside the entrance to Filene's and Filene's Basement. Walk about 15 feet away from the Washington Street entrance, then look down to your left. Underneath what now appears to be a storage area, you'll see part of the plaque commemorating the location - lord only knows why Filene's felt compelled to cover it up.
