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.
