    Dorchester AVE

    Sorry buddy but Dorchester Ave runs parrell to Sixth in this area. Dorchester Street runs up from Andrew Square to intersect with Broadway at Perkins Square crossing over and ending at First Street. Dot Ave actually crosses Dorchester Street as it runs by. If you are native then learn your streets, if you are not well that explains it.

    I think I'm going to start referring to southie in public as SOBO just to see the locals, townies, natives, whatever you want call them, get their panties all wrapped up in a bunch.

    Of all the ridiculous things yuppies have been blamed for in Southie shootings has to be the most hilarious. Please tell me you're trolling with this comment. My guess is both the perp and the victim of these shootings live at the projects at 8th and Dot, or D st. Now you're right, those people aren't "originally from Southie" but they certainly ain't yuppies...

    Back in the day, I seem to recall, most of the shootings and teeth extractions were done in basements.

    southie has never been known for shootings lets be real here. check the homicide maps for the last decade and southie barely has any. they get 1-3 a year at most and have had years with no murders. its pretty soft nowadays
