Entering on the first floor, there are rows of bookshelves within a single-room store. There is a sitting/reading area in the back of the store, near where the second floor has collapsed onto the first. Near the entrance is the check-out counter. There is a lootable cash register, and an enamel bucket with Nuka-Cola Quantum inside.
Judging by the rubble from the second floor, there may have been computers on the top floor. However, all that remains currently is a lectern with folding chairs around it, and a sitting area with a first-aid container with aid items. There is a skeleton with a burnt text book in the sitting area, on the ground. It is mostly empty on the second floor, other than this.
- Nuka-Cola Quantum - In an enamel bucket by the front counter.
- Racetrack advertisement - Note on the top of the front counter.
- Help wanted! - Note in one of the cubbyholes in the front counter.
A seal outside marks the Old Corner Bookstore as one of the stops on the Freedom Trail. It is stop 5, and has the code "3: I"
The Old Corner Bookstore only appears in Fallout 4.
Behind the scenes
- The building is based on the real-world Boston landmark, the Old Corner Bookstore, which was originally built in 1712 and converted into a bookstore in 1829.
- While the Old Corner Bookstore in the Fallout universe remains a bookstore, in present-day Boston, the building houses a Chipotle Mexican Grill.
- In reality, the Old Corner Bookstore is south of the Old State House, and on the opposite side of the street; while in the game, they are on the same side of the street, and the Old State House is south of the Old Corner Bookstore.
