Great WGBH Video of the History of the South End

WGBH Video of the South End



If you live in the South End or live in Boston, you should  watch this video. This was a documentary that was aired by WGBH in 1995. It gives great insight into how the South End used to be and what type of neighborhood it was.  A few years ago, I walked through the building Allan Rohan Crite (interviewed) used to own. After he passed, It  was on the market for sale and it was a total gut job and the place was in really bad shape. There were a few remnants of his work left in the old run down building, but  at the time, I really didn’t have much appreciation for what I was walking through. Now the building is worth millions and has a plaque on it that recognizes the artists contribution to the community.  I now imagine how many other buildings have such an amazing history  and the stories that are not as public. What a great area.
