Centered on Washington Street between Boylston Street and Kneeland Street, the area was once the site of many strip clubsstrip showsX-rated movie theaters, and adult bookstores. It had a reputation for crime, including prostitution. Inin an attempt to contain the spread of adult businesses, the Boston Redevelopment Authority officially deated the Combat Zone as the city's adult entertainment district.
