THIRTEEN AND COUNTING


A redevelopment project in my current Dorchester neighborhood inspired me to tally all the Boston neighborhoods where I have resided. I spent at least one year in all but three. I have owned property in two of them. I lived with my parents through college. I graduated at age 20 in 1970. I moved from my parents' house to a dormitory at Tufts Dental School in Boston's Chinatown. Chinatown was the first of thirteen Boston neighborhoods I have resided in. The list goes as follows:

Chinatown

Symphony

Back Bay

Roxbury

Beacon Hill

Copley

South End

West End

Fenway

East Boston

Jamaica Plain

Charlestown

Dorchester
