Oh they're in rich towns, they're just called "retreats" or some other variant that sounds nice(and of course they aren't free so that may have something to do with it).These people aren't really from that neighborhood. They come from your cities and towns, get off on the Red Line and walk to the methadone clinics. I would luuuuuuv if these clinics were in some rich town.
Rich towns deport their homeless and family abandoned drug addicts to cities. The cities are dumb enough to take them without sending those skinflint towns a bill for providing the services they won't. It's typically only when a town is about to get slapped across the face with multiple 40bs that they cut the snobbery make it someone else's problem shit and clean up their own messes.These people aren't really from that neighborhood.

Oh, that explains all those homeless people sleeping on the grass embankment! I used to take the Mass Ave exit a lot in the 90's to visit friends at Northeastern and there was always just that one panhandler at the light near the prison. Drove by there about a year ago and the road was totally different and lined with about thirty wretched characters sleeping on cardboard.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.
Marty pretends it doesn't exist.
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.
