Just because "everybody knew everybody" in South Boston, doesn't make it a great place to live. There are plenty of places where "everyone knows everyone" that are far better than South Boston. All you residents, or former residents of Southie are so used to defending your neighborhood and sugar-coating it, that you don't see the forest for the trees. In fact, South Boston was one of the most insular, arrogant, racist, corrupt, crime-ridden, drug-laden, thug-producing neighborhoods in all of Boston and New England. I know adults who grew up in South Boston and the stories they tell me of how it was growing up there in the 60's and 70's are unbelievbably shocking. Gangs, mobsters, drug deals, stabbings, beatings, rapes, murders, etc., etc. It was all kept quiet by the locals because that was "the code." Shameful and disgusting. South Boston residents were the loudest and most violent opponents to school and public housing integration when that came about in the 70's and 80's. Black families on the public housing waitlist had to wait for an open apartment in another neighborhood (sometimes for years), even when there was an opening in a public housing facility in South Boston, because the local Southies were so hostile toward blacks. Fortunately a federal order changed that eventually. Read Michael Patrick MacDonald's book, "All Souls: A Family Story from Southie." This will tell you the REAL story of South Boston. After the publishing of his book, MacDonald received death threats from local South Boston residents for revealing the truth about South Boston. More of the "code of silence." More despicable behavior. Whitey Bulger was from South Boston. Need I say more? It's slowly changing now, for the BETTER, but I would not have wanted to live or grown up in Southie for all the money in the world. For all those Southie folks who say "you don't understand," Oh yes we do, perhaps more than you do. You can have it.

You can't blame all of South Boston's troubles on the "outsiders" who moved in there "later." That is a cop out. Southie was bad even in the 60's and 70's. See my comment entry on the post for more of my opinion.
This is older site ..but I live in FL. now..I was born and raised in Southie..in the 50's - attended Oliver H. Perry School..I walked to school and home with no prb's..Sure we had fights but not like kids are now.My friends would walk to Castle Island and visit Kelly's landing..fishing at the Sugar Bowl..I lived on 4th St. with my 4 sisters and 2 brothers..We moved the suburbs in 1959. I have always missed Southie//Back to Boston in Oct..I will visit Southie that for sure..

It is interesting to me to read all the comments from people who live "outside" South Boston now, whether they ever lived here or not. I see a lot of denial going on.
Personally, from this side of the fence I don't see much difference in the quality of the people who live here now than I did throughout the years, and I wasn't born here.
Most of my neighbors are law abiding, families trying to bring up children with limited incomes. Sure there are bad apples in the bunch, but guess what! They were here in the 50's, 60's, 70's, 80's etc. right up through the present, and not just in the projects. And also, I see similar "bad apples" in the suburbs where many of my friends and family live and put up with. Personally, I'm glad I stayed, I love the city and it's many opportunities. The faces change but the love is still there. Wake up and smell the roses. Life is what we make it.

I grew up in Southie. I loved it. Most of my relatives still live there. Southie does have their
problems just like any town in New England. I will always love it.

so going by a book tells you everything really look up michael mcdonald look at his dob then look at the the years he has written about. Who are your friends from southie name them cause you dont have any. Its a shit hole now because of all the people that moved in crime rate is thru the roof. Yes whitey sucked he did but he kept a tight leash on southie if you didnt grow up here you dont no so go read some more books and newspapers so you can learn more about a town you could never really know.

You live in Cambridge and criticize another community? Any Community?! Cambridge is a leftwing stinkhole populated by anti- American trash. Residents there are notorious for having no common sense, being among the most rude and nasty found anyplace and for having the personal hygiene of slopped pigs. I'll take South Boston anytime.
