The LIGHTS. Worthington Street is finally getting the attention it deserves, with the newly strung lights. Being downtown’s longtime entertainment street, the lights add an updated modern vibe to the street. Both Stearns Square, Duryea Way, and the sidewalks along Worthington Street have all gone under major renovations over the summer.
