      I hope the new homeowners of their multi-million dollar luxury condos on West Broadway enjoy their lovely neighbors across the street.

      Just tell your kids that those loud noises are fire crackers.

    I keep saying these public housing projects are nothing more than crime dens for “NO INCOME” parasites who infest these structures..im willing to bet the ” victim ” of this shooting was someone “VISITING” his unwed girlfriend, who is a irresponsible resident DEADBEAT sucking off the public trough at our expense..

    I wonder how long its gonna be before some bleeding heart informs me that not all residents are ” criminals” and I’m showing my perdijuce…i understand not all residents criminals, however WHY IS IT 95% of the shootings in southie happen in these projects?..can’t wait for them to TEAR DOWN the old harbor (MCCORMACK) and relocate these DEADBEATS.

    Building MILLION DOLLAR CONDOS right across street from shooting..better be careful investors, nobody wants to spend OVER 1
    Million for a 1300 as ft condo next to refugee, welfare fraud, unwed mother, SSI DISABILITY PHONY, and general DEDBEATS who suck off the hard working people (INCLUDING YUPPIES) of SOUTHIE..CLOSE THEM DOWN!!

    Imagine if the “yuppies” and “old timers” teamed up?

    Together, promote explosive growth and development of Southie.

    It would be a very powerful way to ensure Southie is developed the way WE want while literally forcing this type of behavior out.

      Imagine if Yuppies actually cared about what happened in their neighborhood and didn’t just ignore local politics because they know they won’t live in this neighborhood in the near future?


      Imagine if the old timers didn’t feel the clock running out and the need to put their stamp on any and everything happening in the neighborhood?

        We care very much! The fact that there are two different types of “yuppies” doesn’t help the situation.

        There are the yuppies you speak of…the ones who rent. The ones who do not care and will not be living here in a year.

        Then, there are the yuppies that you group into the “yuppies”. We are employed. We own our homes. We care about OUR neighborhood. And we will be here for years to come.

        EMPOWER us to work WITH you, and NOT against you. I think you would find that you just created an ally with one of the largest and loudest demographics of South Boston.

    Not so New, I usually don’t agree with you but on your last comment I believe you’re right. However, you have to agree with me many (NOT ALL) of the residents of these public housing projects are either FAKE SOCIAL SECURITY DISABILITY RECIPIENTS, UNWED MOTHERS, PHONY REFUGEES, PEOPLE NOT ON THE LEASE WHO SQUATTER IN THE APARTMENTS, AND GENERAL DEADBEATS! Who spill into the neighborhood..

    Thanks, Mayor Walsh. We’re in the Sanctuary city. Criminals and illegal immigration don’t have money live millions dollars condominium, of course these projects like in a war zone. What do you guys want from it? Get used to it, Pray it won’t get worse to spread out other neighborhoods.

      Here’s a little game Eva. Place these prepositions and conjunctions into their proper locations in your paragraph: or, of, in, are, to.

        Hi Guppy,
        Oh, sorry I didn’t clarify that my English isn’t my first language and I was pretty old when I moved to the United States. If you tried to embarrass me by pick on my English grammar. It’s ok and that’s your privilege to born here and learn English as your first language. I’m proud of myself, and your arrogant didn’t hurt me a bit. Have a good night.

          Excellent phrasing. Good work. Keep it up.
