In 1960, Boston's West End was bulldozed by the city of Boston with funding from the federal government. The West End was an immigrant neighborhood of 25,000 inhabitants from nearly 20 different ethnic backgrounds. The neighborhood was labeled as a "slum" in the justifications to raze it. Where its residents once lived now stands luxury high-rise apartments. This book acknowledges this legacy and remembers the erasure of the West End through oral histories, photography, and architecture from the old neighborhood.
