‘Virtual Street Corners’ Connects Socially Isolated Neighborhoods
Virtual Street Corners brings together two communities who rarely interact with the help of a video connection.
Roxbury and Brookline are connected by the Route 66 bus line and separated by only 2.4 miles, but socially they are worlds apart. Roxbury is a poor, urban neighborhood in Boston proper and Brookline is a wealthy, suburban neighborhood just outside the city. As of today, the communities rarely interact. Thanks to an interesting project named Virtual Street Corners that is all about to change.
