I can’t even remember why, but I found myself looking at Boston’s crime statistics, which are broken out by district. What makes no sense to me are the names. Here’s a map with all of the districts:
Why, for instance, are there three A districts, A-1, A-7, and A-15? Where did A-2 to A-6 go? I don’t get this. If these were consolidated districts (i.e., districts used to much smaller and there were more of them), why would someone pick those three names, and not A-1 to A-3?
Anyone know, or is this just another case of “Boston: Because Fuck You?”
