I live near Borelli, and have to heartily agree. As low-income neighbourhoods go, it's pretty damn friendly and family oriented. This isn't to say that we don't have our problems, but I can't say that I often feel unsafe.

My years downtown and in the North End have taught me to be very aware of my surroundings, but also that most people who look "scary" really aren't, and that most of the rest are more than willing to treat you with the same respect you show them. It's far from perfect, but I'm not really sure that I ever want to go back to living in a truly "nice" neighbourhood after the sense of freedom and vibrancy I've witnessed here.
