  1. It seems like the Crime Rate in the North End is getting worse. There are drug addicts coming in from everywhere.

    They are stealing packages out of buildings,, robbing our local stores. I can’t stress this enough, anyone that
    owns property should have cameras & very strong locks on building doors. Most locks that buzz visitors in
    buildings are sometimes the easiest to break in with credit cards. Don’t wait until an incident happens to you.
