Thomas Park, South Boston
Affording one of the best views of the city, South Boston High School abuts Thomas Park, located in the center of South Boston.
The high school, central to that part of town, drawing all of South Bostons students was also the epicenter for Bostons race riots in the 1970s as the city was forced to bus black students in from Roxbury to achieve a racial balance, garnering national attention.
John Connolly, Whitey Bulger and many of his associates went there though some, like Bulger, didnt finish. When Connolly moved to the Boston FBI office, he took residence in a house across the street from the high school.
