Trying to get a feel for the neighborhoods in South Boston
East side is the place you want to live. The area is residential but very close to shops, bars and restaurants. East of L street is the best area. I had lived there for 20+ years..

The west side of South Boston is high in crime but the condo prices are high as most condos on the market now are renovated inside.
The west side is far more industrial and has a higher crime rate. The east side is residential, nearer the ocean and just a better place to live. ( I live there now)
