A City (Town) in greater Boston that has seen a rapid decline in living standards and is now the poorest community on the South Shore. Once a "Bedroom community" of Boston, Weymouth is now the epicenter of the growing drug epidemic destroying the rest of the South Shore. The police run around arresting people all day and night, pulling over anyone they think is a gang banger, hoodrat or drug dealer.
Helping with the "Ghetto-ing" of Weymouth is the rapid trend of local homeowners leaving and instead renting there homes out to much poorer residents. This has helped hoodrats and drug dealers get a foothold in Weymouth and drives the crime rate higher and higher. Alot of the apartment complexes in the Weymouth Landing now only take Section 8 residents because nobody with decent income will live in Weymouth anymore, they have all moved to Braintree and Hingham.
Another reason Weymouth is turning Ghetto is the Gentrification of downtown Boston. Since the core city nolonger wants to house its lower income residents downtown, it has pushed alot of them into the surrounding communties as section 8 residents. This has helped drive the city's population growth much higher. Because of this, traffic on Middle street and Main street in the afternoon is a nightmare now!
Weymouth is a suburb in a dangerous downward spiral. With Boston Hoodrats now appearing in town, its clear the city is repeating the same demographic transition Mattapan underwent decades ago..
"Im gonna to grab some triple c down in the Weymouth Landing for the party tonight at Lake Street, its gonna be off da hook!"
"We used to drink n shit in great esker but now the Weymouth police fuck with us every time we are near Lowes."
