I was doing some HVAC work at the old Digital building on the corner of Melnea Cass and Mass Ave, it was like being at a circus. A homeless guy saw me with my torches and the next day he called me over and asked if I wanted to buy a fire extinguisher, every one was marked BCH.Melnea Cass Boulevard at Massachusetts Avenue. When you have the Suffolk County Jail, Methodone Mile, the Greater Boston Food Bank, Boston Medical Center (and their dispensary), BMC's Shelter, Boston's replacement for the Long Island Shelter at the former Boston Transportation Department Headquarters, and the Pine Street Inn's satellite facilities all within a block or two, you get this shit-show.

Sad thing is 10-12 years ago you used to be able to walk through that traffic nightmare and not really get hassled other than pan-handlers on the median. It's really been downhill since 2008 and especially since Marty's regime took over.
