Gentrification That Leaves A Neighborhood Intact

South Boston has gentrified and yuppified, but its unique social customs have remained.

"As Boston's changing neighborhoods go, South Boston is often compared to Charlestown, the South End, or Jamaica Plain - working-class neighborhoods that have been transformed and in some cases, like the South End, turned into some of the most affluent parts of an increasingly affluent city.

...Whatever the future holds, Southie is not the province of the super rich, and that's appreciated. It's always been its own distinct neighborhood, and that endures to this day."
