... the day without the bad weather, It is also across the street from the Apple Store, a block or so away from the great Boston Public Library (like a museum and a new wing with a coffee shop) and Trinity Church.
The Prudential centre is worth the walk from the main area of Boston to go around the very nice shopping centre and the awesome skywalk viewing platform, well worth your time.
