This chapter describes the historical development of the neighborhoods that set the stage for the integration of Latin Americans into public housing. South Boston is best known as a tightly bonded and defended Irish American neighborhood, whereas East Boston is best known as a receiving neighborhood that has integrated various waves of immigrants. The histories of the two neighborhoods are linked to the broader history of Boston. Both neighborhoods sit within a few miles of downtown Boston but are separated from it, bordering the Atlantic Ocean and barricaded by several lanes of federal and state highways. For the purposes of this study, these neighborhoods provide different contexts for the integration of Latin American immigrants.
