Am I wrong about the location, or is the Boston Herald altering facts to sell papers? Last night's fatal shooting was at or near 77 Lenox Street, which is not in the South End. Look at a map. That's the ghetto, folks. West of Mass. Ave. and south of Tremont. Roxbury proper.
If I'm wrong, I trust John Daley will set me straight.
UPDATE: I hadn't read it when I wrote this, but the Boston Globe agrees with me. That's Roxbury. Note their headline, "1 slain, 3 wounded in Roxbury Shooting."
For those of you from out of town, Roxbury is the part of town you don't want to live in; South End is the rapidly-gentrifying buffer between Back Bay (where you do want to live) and Roxbury. South End is known for, among other things, its gay community, its art community, its restaurants, and its fast-appreciating housing prices in exactly the way Roxbury isn't.
