that whole stretch of road is a nightmare. sadly, not shocked to hear someone was stabbed there. its effectively an open air heroin den. my wife and i have hassled the city for years about the deplorable situation down there, and other than that poorly executed campaign after that prison guard was attacked, they have done nothing other than let people die.
Southampton Street is a giant stain on the city of boston. its the hole in the safety net that they don’t care to fix.
