When we were moving up here in 2000, one of the women I worked gift wrap with at the mall had a son who lived "in Boston". She warned me to never go into Roxbury or Dorchester, since they were the most dangerous areas in Greater Boston. Over our years here, sometimes those areas look like they're getting better, and sometimes they look really bad, just from watching news reports.
I guess every big city has more than their fair share of rough neighborhoods. I knew which ones to steer clear of when we were back in greater Cleveland. But like in OH, where we are in MA is pretty white-collar-crime "dangerous".
