all I know is

that Ed and John Fish made their money there and split and now Arthur Winn's company manages it. (He got indicted and copped to illegal contributions to Steve Lynch, Mike Capuano and Diane Wilkerson.) Those "Hope VI" projects like this one were a bonanza for developers, not sure it's as much fun handling the day to day operation.

Bricks...

By on

This person is saying that Smith St is home to the projects of Mission Hill. A long time ago they were actual brick buildings but now are townhouses but still does not change the fact that it is low income housing with gang related activity.

The Tobin School was put into "safe mode"...what is it, a Windows PC? This is both humorous to me and tragic. It's sad we no longer think of our schools as automatically safe (though statistically, they still very much are).

Less severe than lockdown, I guess

By on

In a lockdown, students and teachers have to stay in their rooms; in "safe mode," they do what they normally do, except nobody's allowed in or out of the school.

I was born and raise in the projects-Mission Hill now known as Mission Main. That gangster who was murdered on Smith St was my older brother. He was a father to his children, a husband to his wife, a son to his mother and a brother to his sisters (me). It doesn't matter if Mission Main is for low income family or not. Mission Main is now known to have a lot of college student living there. At the end of it all no one deserve to die this way. Just think of it like if it was ur family member. Let's just hope justice is serve or else that gangster who shot my brother might just shoot ur siblings someday.

Mission Hill Projects

50 years ago the Mission Hill Projects and others around Boston housed thousands
of working families after the Great Depression they were hard working people and crime
was almost unknown there and these were indeed poor people. Todays Town Houses
there would have been considered "palaces" by those who formerly lived in those
areas . Millions of Americans would give their right arms to live in such housing in
such a special city and in the heart of it ! Roxbury also has thousands of magnificent
Colonial and Victorian homes and millions have been spent over the years to
raise it to spectacular community levels. There has to be another explanation here
for all this crime in these area and it must be cultural no one dares speak its name
evidently,
