So if you read this article it’s basically like a “Humans of New York” thing, except for Main South. Reverend Councilor Sarai “Ti-ti-ho” Rivera was one of several people interviewed about the current state of Worcester’s most glamorous part of town. And almost all of them had nothing but bad things to say about the district she represents. Yet Masslive is making her seem like she’s some sort of protector of hookers who is concerned about the people who live in her district. Here’s some of the people they interviewed:
Hector “Manny” Caraballo has lived in Main South since 1981. He thinks it will never change. “As far as the crime and the drugs, it hasn’t changed any. If anything, it’s gotten worse,” he said, starting to eat a heaping plate of lunch at Maria’s Kitchen.”
I didn’t like the homeless people outside of my building, so that was kind of an issue for me,” she said. “I know that a few of my coworkers who have also lived fairly close in the area also had problems with the homelessness and even vandalism, as far as their cars being broken into.”
With a Dunkin’ Donuts iced coffee on hand, Oliver, 20, was blasting “I’m Real” by Jennifer Lopez featuring Ja Rule on a recent afternoon. What does he think of Main South? “Same old, same old,” he said. “I don’t see no change.”
“I usually don’t go out at night since, usually at night it’s a little bit more, um, not quiet,” Solis said, referring to drug activity and prostitution she has seen in the neighborhood. “I just go to church and from church I just go to my house and sometimes I just go out with my sons and my husband.”
“At night, you can see people hanging around and not behaving, you know,” he said. “It’s crazy at night. Even to go to the store. You feel a little bit scared when you go out.”
“You have a house and you never know when it can get broken into,” he said. Norford lives close to the shop with his wife and two daughters. But this environment makes him nervous about raising his girls. “I can’t wait to leave,” he said. Norford moved to Worcester when he was 8 years old. Prostitution and drugs have always been in the area, but he said he sees a lot more young people involved now.
“At nighttime, it’s very dangerous unless you’ve got an attitude like mine. Cause I’ll whoop anybody’s ass,” Boisvert said.
“What we are seeing, and I will say at the moment my biggest disappointment in terms of all of this work that’s going, on is the inability to address the issues of open pubic disorder in this Main Street corridor and that involves dealing and that involves prostitution,” he said.
Magaly Trinidad, 50, comes to Main South to visit friends and grab a coffee from her favorite Dunkin’ Donuts. They used to know her order by heart. But she doesn’t live here anymore. It was the drugs and crime, she said, that made her move away from Main South in 2004 after 18 years of calling the neighborhood home. “For the last 10 years, crime really destroyed this neighborhood,” she said. In fact, one day when she was walking home from work, she was shot in the back by a BB gun, she said.

So to review. Main South is dangerous. It’s filled with drugs, crime, teenage parents, random guys with boom boxes, prostitution, and junkie couples making out.
Sarai Rivera isn’t doing anything to clean it up. And as a result many of the people interviewed fled Main South and are very happy with their decision. Nevertheless, this was their headliner:
Masslive is officially fake news, in bed with the McGovern Crime Family.
