The latest crime scene perimeter has certainly shrunk from the original 15-block area designated earlier in the week. Here are the stores along Boylston Street in that off-limits area which have yet to reopen following Monday's bomb attacks on the Back Bay's main drag.

Note: Yes, the malls are in the zone, but they are open and accessible on the Huntington Avenue side, and of course, accessible through walkways connected the Pru and Copley. Also, Nordstrom Rack is open, but only on the Newbury Street side. City Sports on Boylston can be accessed through the St. James side of the building. Restoration Hardware is open given that its entrances are on Berkeley and Newbury. Ball and Buck and Niketown are also on the fringe of the crime scene, but are currently open.

From Hereford to Clarendon:

Eastern Mountain Sports, 855 Boylston Street
Walgreens, 841 Boylston Street
Apple, 815 Boylston Street
Crate & Barrel, 777 Boylston Street
The Tannery, 711 Boylston Street
Lens Crafters, 699 Boylston Street
Marathon Sports, 671 Boylston Street
CVS, 587 Boylston Street
New Balance, 583 Boylston Street
