I'm role playing a character, this lovely lady in my icon actually, Faith from Buffy the Vampire Slayer. She is Boston Irish. I am, annoyingly, British and know very little about Boston. Given that she came from a dirt poor, rough background (mother was an alcoholic) is there a part of Boston she could have reasonably have come from? She left when she was 16 in 1998.
And are there any websites that could work as a good guide to Boston I can use as a reference when talking about her childhood?
