Snapshots of Southie's transformation
SeaportIn the early 1980s the Southie waterfront was an isolated and desolate place.
Even so, Jimmy's Harborside was a longtime institution in Southie. The restaurant was demolished in 2007. Now, the Seaport District has been transformed into one of Boston's newest and trendiest locations, with dining spots such as Temazcal Tequila Cantina, where menus are displayed on iPads, and the five-level Legal Sea Foods.
