One of the most appealing reasons to live in South Boston is it's central location to three major train stations and bus stops on just about every corner. Thousands of residents and visitors use the extensive MBTA system of trains and buses to get in and around Boston. Commuting into Boston for work is a snap. Public transportation via bus, subway, and commuter train serves as a vital link between Downtown and surrounding neighborhoods and the greater Metro-Boston area.

“You can take the Girl out of South but you can’t take the Southie out of the Girl” Even if you move away from South Boston, it has a way of staying with you. One former Southie girl, Malena Luongo from East Third Street, moved to L.A., but Southie blood still ran though her veins. Her love of her hometown inspired her to create an original print to represent her favorite childhood places. These posters can be customized to represent your hometown favorite places too!!! They come in two sizes and all different colors.
"I wanted to stay connected to my roots in Southie so I created a poster to hang in my apartment. When I posted the picture on Facebook, everyone loved it, so I opened and Etsy shop and put them up for sale."
This poster would make the perfect gift for Southie residents past and present. If you just bought or rented a new place and want something to remember home, this is the poster for you!
