Where We Live – Quincy
This week, in a multi-media series we’re calling “Where We Live,” WGBH is taking a town-by-town look at how economic changes have affected communities across Massachusetts. Today, we travel to the city of Quincy. In the 1950s it was known as Shoppers Town USA – the place to shop if you lived south of Boston. But as malls became popular and highways opened, Quincy Center became a rundown relic. Today, Shopper’s Town USA is a row of nail salons and dollar stores. But a first-of-its-kind public-private partnership is hoping a $1.3 billion dollar redevelopment will bring the Quincy’s downtown back to life. I’m joined now by WGBH’s Toni Waterman and by Jack Encarnacao of The Patriot Ledger.
