Proprietor of "the five Seventy market" in the South End, Allen was a graduate of Babson College and an entrepreneur of great vision and passion. His business ventures included Bostonian Market, Light & Lovely, and Super Ads Marketing, among others. "The five Seventy market" was a cornerstone in the revitalization of Boston’s South End, and a touchstone for the growing arts and theatre community.
