This guy does a wonderful job breaking down the last 40+ years in Dorchester and what lies at the heart of a massive demographic change.
There are families that never left….and these families deserve a much better job from our policy makers when tackling the issue of gentrification. I know of some families have been in Boston for over 140 years, in that time they have endured two major social experiments in blockbusting and busing. Improving the city is important but creating an environment where families, who are the fabric of Boston, are consistently priced out for the sake of lining the pockets of both the city and developers, especially those in other countries, should be avoided at all costs.
