  1. JOHN NUCCI, The only thing you can do to save this Neighborhood is we have to get rid of these
    college kids. There is good & bad in everything, but the Bad definitely out weighs the Good by far in
    the No. End. I just want to give you a couple of examples, These kids threw beer cans or bottles,
    and urinated on our Police from rooftops, they throw their Trash out whenever they want, they let their dogs crap,
    and don’t pick it up, they are outside of our buildings from late nite to early morning smoking and talking
    like it was 3 pm instead of 3 am, and they had the nerve to have sex in some of our buildings.
    Save the neighborhood John & with all the construction going on by No. Station, etc. build something
    affordable for these students to live in. Some of these students are paying $1,0000 per student to
    live in slums, build something for them, that is affordable & away from Neighborhoods that are
    affected by the unacceptable behavior of most of these students. Where there is a will, there is a
    way, you can do it JOHN.

  2. Marie, unfortunately your seeing a sampling of what the residents of Mission Hill,Beacon Hill ,Allston, Brighton & Somerville have been living with for years,

  3. The worst thing the North End activists did was get manipulated by the Beacon Hill Civic Association to join them in opposing the Suffolk dorm there.

    Beacon Hill now has a nice quiet, clean classroom building and we have all the students living here with their roof deck parties and trash.

    Getting rid of college students would deprive NE landlords of big bucks.
    There are 2 buildings across from me, inhabited by mostly college students, and I’ve not seen, nor heard any trouble for years. Sex in ‘our’ buildings Marie? Our buildings? Are you serious? Are you speaking of ‘your’ buildings , or where they rent apartments.

  5. The North End is one of the the most desirable places to live in the city. If Suffolk didn’t exist, landlords would have no problem filling apts. None. On top of that, landlords would be forced to fix their places up in order to rent them since college kids don’t care what the place looks like. They just know their parents are paying their rent every month. To say college kids aren’t a problem is ludicrous. But there’s a lot of blame to go around. Some landlords are greedy and don’t live in the buildings they rent. It’s not all landlords just like it’s not all college kids.
