All of these places are T accessible most of which are connected by either the highspeed trolley or the Redline T.

I can't say I know them all, but here are a few to get you started:

Andrew Square, Ashmont, Adams Village, Grove Hall, Lower Mills, Neponset, Savin Hill, St. Brendans (Cedar Grove?), Uphams Corner.

Some of these are noted on MLS and some are not, from a real estate perspective.

I'm sure others more familiar with all areas of Dorchester will chime in with a few more "local" descriptions.

I did a quick google too after I came up with my list, and wikipedia has a good map:,_Boston

Good luck!
