Now I am no expert on Bostons

Now I am no expert on Bostons neighborhood boundaries, but when in doubt, you can always look up the address in the city's "My Neighborhood" search and at least see what the city thinks its called. In this case, its Roxbury.

Outdated source. Grove Hall

Outdated source. Grove Hall is in Dorchester. The zip code is 02121. Roxbury ends at about Quincy St. Do you think the Boston Public Schools to whom neighborhood is everything is unaware of the location?

We call it Dorxbury.

It's Dorchester according to the post office and Roxbury according to the city, and those are both current.

We call it Dorxbury.
