Same Old Southie

Hmmm.  Interesting article in today’s Boston Globe Magazine.  Not sure if I can agree with everything the writer says.  He puts a very pretty face on current day South Boston.  A good read.

As much as South Boston has changed and gentrified and yuppified, it has, in truth, not changed much at all. Still gritty, still old Boston.

By Anthony Flint, Boston Globe Magazine

 

When Jim Tucker and Edwin Bradley moved into a renovated Victorian in South Boston nearly three years ago, they were relieved that they didn’t encounter the dirty looks, or worse, that they had anticipated. Just a short walk from South Boston High School, where the scars of busing still linger, a biracial gay couple had managed to do the unthinkable in this notoriously insular bastion of Irish-Catholic, old-school Boston: They had quietly blended in.

Neighbors introduced themselves – some already knew the pair’s names – and both men met a dozen more people while walking their boxer, Apollo Creed, in the park around the Dorchester Heights Monument. “Suddenly we were part of this little neighborhood,” says Bradley, a waiter at Mistral. “It felt good.”

 

I like this part, the most, however.  For obvious reasons.

 

However Southie changes over the next 10 years, residents, real estate agents, and developers agree that there is one area in particular to watch: lower Broadway between Dorchester Avenue and A Street, including the Court Square Press building and the soon-to-be-built MacAllen Building; the former Albany radiator, Sunoco gas station, and Linehan’s pub redevelopment sites; and the Notre Dame academy complex, all clustered around the Broadway T station. The old St. Peter and Paul’s Church has already been converted into condos.

Industrial and commercial buildings and sites are also likely to be converted to residential, on A Street from Broadway toward the already renovated loft buildings and the Channel Center in the Fort Point Channel district, and along First, Second, and Third streets from A Street all the way to Dorchester Street. Imagine an “L” starting around the Broadway T station and running from the Fort Point Channel up to and behind the new convention center – that’s likely to be the vanguard of the most radical change. If a bistro opens in Southie in the next decade, it will probably be closer in proximity to the venerable Amrhein’s – or in Amrhein’s – than the L Street Tavern.
