A neighborhood in Boston which lies south of Back Bay, east of Roxbury, west of South Boston, and north of Dorchester. The neighborhood has had a long existence of crime. It contains four housing projects: Villa Victoria, Methunion Manor, Cathedral Housing, and Tent City. The area originally a Black, Jewish, and Irish mix, has a largely growing Hispanic population. The South End is not to be confused with Back Bay, which is a much wealthier, ritzier area of Boston.
"There was another shooting last night in South End."
