I don't like the crowd there in general, but they have a great tap list.

I guess to be fair, the middle of summer crowd (i.e. no students) is probably not the same as the normal crowd.

Short answer that nobody wants to accept: Boston is predominantly white.

The City of Boston is less than 50% white. Massachusetts as a whole though is predominantly white.

How did this thread end up being about race.

Anyone know what the deal is with the derelict property near 70 Prospect St in Cambridge on the same side as the Whole Foods there? It looks long abandoned. I used to live across the street for 2 months when I moved here.

Boston is predominantly white (unless you want to argue over the definition of predominant. OED says "Constituting the main, most abundant, or strongest element"). Non-hispanic whites make up a significant plurality of the population. Whites including white hispanics make up a majority.

In 2015 (according to census.gov)
White (includes White Hispanics) 52.9%
Black 25.3%
Asian 9.4%
Native American 0.4%
Two or more races 4.5%
Hispanic or Latino (of any race) 19.5%
Non-Hispanic Whites 44.6%

I'd argue that when you factor in college students and people who work in but don't live in Boston it's even whiter--but I don't have data to back that up and some might not consider people who don't live here in this conversation.

Have a Street View link to show which property you're talking about? I can't think of anything derelict where you're talking about.

Parts of Brockton and Fitchburg are that blighted, I would say. It's not Boston proper, but still...
