The Seaport District gets its close-up, in last week’s Times’ Travel section (for some reason, the reporter calls it “South Boston”, apparently getting this mistake past the editor).

Has Southie gone legit? The South Boston waterfront has long been a neglected industrial district, pocked with abandoned warehouses and vacant lots. While a few factories were converted into artists’ lofts over the last two decades, it remained a seedy place.

But with the arrival last December of the Institute of Contemporary Art/Boston (100 Northern Avenue, 617-478-3101; www.icaboston.org), a visionary glass box designed by Diller Scofidio + Renfro that cantilevers over the waterfront, the neighborhood is finally emerging as a vibrant arts district, with destination restaurants, green parks and condos.
