Crime & Safety

Lillian Rhodes - Real Estate Agent

Dorchester has a negative reputation in the city for its high crime, even though people claim that the area is getting better. The stats certainly don’t back this up: in both 2009 and 2010, about half of the city’s murders (48% and 44% respectively) were in Dorchester, even though the neighborhood is only home to around 15% of Boston’s population. And when you look at where the other murders took place, most of them are in the neighboring areas of Roxbury and Mattapan. So, yes, there is validity to Dorchester’s crime-ridden reputation--it’s one of the most dangerous communities in Boston.

 
 
Demographics

Demographics

Lillian Rhodes - Real Estate Agent

Dorchester is largely a working class neighborhood. It’s very diverse, and with its large Irish American population, it embodies the Irish culture that Boston is known for across the world. There are also sizable populations of African Americans, Hispanics, and Asians. A new trend appearing in Dorchester is the arrival of groups like gays/lesbians, the young professional, recent college grads, and artists. These new populations have definitely added a new look to the area.
