    This is correct.
    I went to high school in Dorchester. I learned not to conflate it with Southie in any way.
    You've all been warned.

    As I have only been a resident of MA for a bit over 18 months I will defer to you on the finer points and definitions of local neighborhoods. Ultimately my intention was for them to fix the facts in the article.

    ...the finer points...

    It's like saying Queens is a borough of Brooklyn.

    They are connected on the same piece of land which leads to confusion for some and I believe queens may have partially been a part of Long Island before NYC was incorporated.

    I can pull out my old paper land maps or someone can just google it.

    Not withstanding what is shared below, FireFly is awesome even if they are located in Boston.



    Did not see the graphic on my phone earlier so I thought I would share a few things as well:

    You cannot credibly conflate Mets / Dodgers territory in one post and then attempt Red Sox zingers in a separate post within the same thread.

    Oh wait, that's right, you already did!

    Related but not related.

    Boyle Heights is called East Los Angeles.
    East Los Angeles is not a neighborhood of the City of Los Angeles.
    Boyle Heights is a Chicano neighborhood in the City of Los Angeles
    The Eastside, which is 95% Chicano, contains both Boyle Heights and East Los Angeles.
    Since the late 90's trendy, affluent white Angelenos have decided that the Eastside is actually Highland Park, Silver Lake, Echo Park and Hollywood.
    Silver Lake, Echo Park and Hollywood are east of West Los Angeles.

    East of Eden is my favorite Steinbeck adaptation.

    For the record, I have never been a Mets fan. Yankees all the way.

    Unfortunately, I now live too close to Fenway and in a building that apparently The Babe lived in when he played, cough, cough, for the Red Sox.

    Back to debating the boundaries Boston neighborhoods please...and let's make sure we keep the how great is firefly conversation going.
