Really, an immigrant community adjacent to downtown Boston? Maybe through the 80's or so, but no longer by now.

I think it would be just like the cheaper end of Beacon Hill and most of the North End: lots of young professionals that don't mind small apartments in exchange for living downtown, a few students, and just a smattering of the old-guard who never left. It would have a handful of epic dives, but mostly near-invisible pizza joints and ho-hum pubs like the Red Hat.
