by Rick Winterson     No one has to be told that South Boston is an unusual place.  It was annexed to the City of Boston 215 years ago in 1804, and certain areas in Southie still retains their original names, evoking a “once-upon-a-time” connection with Dorchester.  These names include Washington Village, whose brother neighborhood was Adams Village near Quincy, and of course, Dorchester Heights, the site that anchored the first Evacuation Day on March 17, 1776. After 215 years, South Boston’s historic beginnings, middles, and current-day endings have seen enormous, earthquake-like developments, accompanied by equally enormous, earthquake-like arguments between its residents and its developers.  Zoning and its controlling regulations were supposed to provide the answers (or were they?). At approximately 40,000 residents, South Boston [...]

   “Oh, East is East and West is West, and never the twain shall meet …” The Ballad of the East and West" Rudyard Kipling, 1889   by Rick Winterson      First, a bit of local history:  Way back, Broadway was split into West and East Broadway at Perkins Square; the two east-west segments were (and still are) each about a mile long.  Over the years, West Broadway came to be known as “Big Broadway” because it was a much more popular place to go.  East Broadway, even though it had its own movie theater and a bowling alley, was called “Little Broadway”. Times changed, as they always do, and the attractions along “Big Broadway” began shrinking.  For many reasons, East Broadway became the [...]
