Detail accuracy in a novel set in Boston

The main characters in this new novel are members of an Italian family in Boston, c. 1950s, that includes several plasterers. Many scenes occur in the home of one of the extended familes and on the job. I can easily script the plastering and construction aspects with accuracy (thanks to my own family history and no, I'm not Italian but do have a Sicilian s.i.l..) It's the details about the city and neighborhoods where I have to do loads of research and that's actually how I found this wonderful site. As I noted elsewhere, I used to live in New Hampshire and have been lost in Boston several times. Hey, I know where Mike's bakery is.
