this area is unique in boston

By on

this is one of very few complete high density neighborhoods in Boston with a significant level of violent crime. It seems worse because these events don't happen as nearby as Claremont Park or even Huntington.

when i lived in the area i did some rough calculations.

i drew a circle around ruggles with an area of 1 square mile and compiled the homicides, shootings, and shots fired incidents for this region over a period of 5 years. then i compared it to other neighborhoods on a per capita basis

this neighborhood fell between hyde park and east boston in terms of safety. nothing outrageous but more violent than most of the others
