Hundreds of neighborhood residents and community leaders gathered to celebrate the beginning of the long-overdue project that will contribute to the revitalization of the Dudley Square area. Speakers included Councillor Jackson, Mayor Thomas M. Menino, State Representative Gloria Fox, and Kairos Shen of the Boston Redevelopment Authority.
"Dudley Square is the the center of Boston and as Dudley rises, so does the City," Councillor Jackson said to sounds of cheers and applause.
