Hyde park has the fairmount line which comes about every hour and takes 25 min to get to south station

It also has a stop at Hyde park and the providence line and new franklin foxboro line run through and can take you to ruggles back bay south station.

It is considered one of the more affordable parts of Boston. The prices seem to be going up there too. Doesn’t have many good restaurants or bars at all.

My assumption is that the next or maybe even first are of HP to be given attention in a long time is the forest hills, walk hill are. There are already a ton of condos built. Harvest market was a little premature to pull out of that spot across. and the Eugene O'neils spot could serve a good place for food and drink while the other restaurants have been doing well for a while. That small district where the DD adn big fat greek pizza could use an overhaul. Cleary sq just seems like its too far out for most people to care. Sad, because it has great potential. It makes me think that if public transportation really gave a crap about this region what it could have become.

That's Hyde Park??? I always thought of Cummins Hwy being the boundary. Washington ST./Forest Hills area solidly JP.

Edit: Huh. You know, I always thought that the malls and shops along American Legion were in Hyde Park, but google maps says Roslindale. So maybe I spoke too soon.
theyre in the part of Roslindale that feels like Mattapan or hyde park but its Roslindale for sure

Walk Hill is the last area i see improving.
  • Hard to develp hilly rocky terrain
  • tons of fast food joints, lots of car exhaust
  • lack of neighborhood identity (most of the residents of walk hill street live in Mattapan)
  • little connection to any public transit. The 14 bus is like once every hour and not on the weekends at all-i think..
  • Boston Audobon Society and a cemetery take up huge shares of developable land.
  • Not much of a history to the area or any attractions to see.
  • Crime
  • Not near any major employer or school-not easily commutable either

Life threatening shooting in Hyde park yesterday (Riverwood section near Mattapan)

Last week there was a non fatal shooting on Garfield Avenue in the part of Hyde Park bordering Milton and near Readville(I call it Moynihan).

There were also two shootings in Roslindale very near the Hyde park border and some would say one was IN Hyde Park

Yeah that part of the city is forever plagued with shootings. Still, doesn't mean it can't change. Let's look at South end near Lenox and even Lamartine JP near Bromley Heath.

Looks like OP was scared away. Let's try to be a little more helpful in the future, they wanted pros and cons nothing more nothing less. Doesn't require intense interrogation of the inquirer. I'm talking stuff like this. It's pretty uncalled for imho:

Pros and cons are going to widely vary from person to person.

Look at it for what?? thats still a site of frequent shooting maybe not the last 4/5 months but...overall? The past year year and a half?

Lenox Street quieted down when they took down their longtime rival- the Columbia Point Dawgz.

Castlegate and Sonoma/Maple are other good examples of a areas that used to be extremely violent that arent anymore

i think Timberline was well within reason here. OP wasnt very specific at all and pros could be cons for others.

I dont think he was too pushy, OP didnt tell us age, where theyre coming from, with who, for how long, ..anything really
