Today, the South End is listed on the National Register of Historic Places and is a Boston Landmark District.” (excerpt from wikipedia) The neighborhood began as a burgeoning middle class one in the 1870s, and with the whites leaving the neighborhood in the 1880s, it gradually became a tenement district attracting new immigrants. It has a large population of black middle class, and is also famous for the concentration of gay men since the 1940s.
Most buildings existing in the 1960s were preserved until today, with the infill of several 7-8 stories high apartment buildings, the density of population and units has increased.
