Bostons Combat Zone is a nickname for its adult entertainment or red light district. This neighborhood just south of China town is notorious for its Strip clubs, prostitution, crime, poverty, adult movie stores, gangsters, homosexuals, rapes, and murders.

Its a dangerous hood and it can be classified as one thing a Boston GHETTO.
