The South End-Roxbury Community Partnership posted this photo tonight of Southampton Street, home to a city shelter and a key congregating point for people at Mass and Cass.
There is heavy Boston Police presence in the location, we suspect is to ensure tents are not rebuilt and help facilitate outreach. A lot of outreach workers offering HELP, but many folks still in the location.
But, as you can see, there are still people there. At a press conference on Monday, Mayor Wu acknowledged that removing the tents and getting their occupants into at least temporary housing with medical and other assistance was only the first step in a process that also needs to include people who routinely congregate along Methadone Mile but who weren't actually living there, or who had not been living there for long periods of time.
WBUR reports on the move out, says "there were dozens of people still living on the streets Wednesday."
