The business incubator quietly rising in Mattapan Square

The Dig takes us on a tour of the co-working space that Jeffrey Similien has built out of what was long ago the Oriental Theater at 1601 Blue Hill Ave. in Mattapan Square.

My father grew up at 111 Woodhaven Street Mattapan and as a youngster I always went for holidays there with my grandparents. Over time, I noticed a general decline in the area and then a slow "incline" which is great. I just read this article and think it is one of the best stories I have seen about Boston in recent years. These are real people being creative and working together to help other real people do well.

Great to see. Hope this snowballs . I'm sure the residential building going up at the T station will help the square.
