    Wow. What narrowmindedness coming from OldTimeSouthie. Do you think the people living in the projects in Southie are there as a life choice? Would you like to be reminded of some of the Southie leaders and other successful people who grew up in the projects?

    I hope 80 yuppies move next door to you. No, better yet, across the street with a better view. If you don’t like Southie – move.

    Oh yeah, I’ll bet everything in my bank account that you profess to be a good Catholic. It’s good when you show your bigotry.

    Not everyone that lives in the projects are garbage pail deadbeats “ … I live in old colony and I work 2jobs and pay $1350 in rent . Some people here actually work hard and are just trying to make ends meet. I wish they would get rid of these people it the promblem is is they don’t evict people they just keep transferring them from one place to another there is a deep seeded issue with bha. The whole system is set up to basically screw everyone, my brother was left for dead years ago luckily he survived, and not one thing was done to improve anything… it’s sad that the few of us that mind our business that work pay our taxes and cause no issue’s have to live this way, it’s not that easy to just move . I’m really tired of people acting like everyone that lives there is trash , that couldn’t be further from the truth. But people are ignorant with out adequate knowledge , what doesn’t effect you doesn’t matter right. This is the promblem with so much of the world today how quickly and easily you disregard other individuals that are doing the right things. Why was it so acceptable when whitey and his gang were doing the very same things, no one dared say anything then.

        Completely understand Cz, you also left out those who are disabled and the elderly who simply cannot make ends meet. There are plenty of good people in the public housing complex’s in Southie, but there are also a lot of bad people.

        I do believe in public housing as a good for society, but it’s clearly being mismanaged and there’s an obvious cycle of people taking advantage of the system. Now that land has become so valuable, I wish there was a way we could relocate these complexs to less valuable places.

        Look at the west broadway development. The northeast side of broadway street on the west side of town is one of the most expensive parts at the moment. The southwest side, which is currently occupied by the public housing development, occupies some VERY VERY valuable land. Many people would kill to be able to redevelop that giant block. Yet people who have committed many a crimes & haven’t pulled their weight all through life (excluding the small percentage who are giving it their all) get to live in one of the best geographic areas of town.

        There needs to be more barriers to obtaining public housing. Especially when it comes to violent offenders.

          I also forgot to mention that the amount of green space these complexs have is ABSURD. I understand they were built long ago without the foresight that green space would be very limited…but holy moly the amount of wasted space that is just grass in these developments is a slap in the face these days.

    CZ: I NEVER said ” everyone” living there was “trash”. According to crime statistics 90% of the shootings in southie took.place in public housing projects! Please don’t bury your head in the sand, if you live there you know there are MANY UNDESIRABLES living in your mist..the place is loaded with unwed mothers, FAKE DISABILITY recipients, refugees, and DEADBEATS who are NOT on the lease living there..these projects are magnets for scumbags (who don’t LEGALLY live in these projects) to hang out..their is a plan to TEAR DOWN OLD HARBOR and spend 1.6.BILLION to re-hab the place ..ARE THEY “BIGOTS”..? Get real and face the truth.

      As callus as you sound, Old Timer, you speak the cold hard truth.

        He is speaking the truth. I just wish he’d STOP SHOUTING. It’s hurting my eyes.

    Hey, just say Moe; did you read CZ closely?. quote from CZ “I wish they would get rid of these people..” also he states “it’s sad that the FEW OF US that mind ou business, work and play our taxes…HAVE TO LIVE THIS WAY..”so is CZ a bigot? Soundly your nothing but a liberal phony who won’t accept the truth..and yes I’m a IRISH CATHOLIC and proud of it.

    I’ll stop shouting when these losers stop riding around southie with their windows down and their stupid rap/gangsta “music” blazing LOUDLY, disturbing the legitimate people of the neighborhood. Maybe I’ll start riding through the projects playing irish music LOUDLY and well see how they like it..southie rules!!

      Fine with me but you’ll have to start with your own kids out here on the point. They play that rap stuff the loudest. Makes me and my dog crazy! And no Oldtimer, they ain’t your yuppies.
